The St. Bede Psalmcast: Episode 2

It’s Episode 2 of the St. Bede Psalmcast!

Audio production is getting a little better; my production assistant donated a pair of her old ballet tights to the show and we rigged a pop filter. I’m learning my way around the editing software too, but I imagine it’ll be a few more episodes before things really shake out.

Instead of dealing with one particular psalm, this time we’re doing a quick introduction to the Psalms as a whole. That having been said, I wasn’t able to get through what I wanted to get through in one episode, so this is Introduction to the Psalms, Part 1; part 2 will come out next week.


The image for this episode is folio 105a from the Parma Psalter illustrating Psalm 76. This is an important (and beautiful!) Hebrew psalter with marginal commentary produced in Northern Italy sometime around 1280.
