 Introducing the Psalms
While too often the psalms are seen as a sort of spiritual "pick-me-up," a view reflecting the distorted "feel-good" mentality of modern society, their message goes far deeper, addressing the entire range of human existence.
Other types of psalms are: Salvation History psalms celebrating God's saving actions on behalf of His people (105-106), Songs of trust affirming God's faithfulness (23, 131), Wisdom psalms extolling the merits of the wise life (36, 73), and Liturgical psalms used in public ceremonies or services of worship (2, 50, 122).
The psalms were used by the Israelites in the context of worship to provide a structure in which they could bring their praises, thanks, hurts and grief honestly and openly before God.

 Singing the Psalms: A Brief History of Psalmody - by Richard C. Leonard, Ph.D., Laudemont Ministries
The number of psalm tunes known to the typical congregation was greatly reduced, and confined to the simplest meters.
The psalm tunes, originally vigorous, were slowed by giving all their notes equal length, supposedly in the interests of solemnity.
Catholic musicians soon produced a wealth of "responsorial psalms", in which one verse is selected as an introduction and refrain (antiphon) to be sung by the congregation, with other verses sung by a cantor.

 Musical Forms - Psalm
By the time of Gregory I (circa 600), the Mass and Office had assumed a fixed shape and antiphonal psalmody (the chanting of a psalm alternately by two choirs) and responsorial psalmody (when the congregation responded to a psalm sung by a cantor) were institutionalized.
Psalms were used as texts for the new motet repertory evolved by Josquin and his contempories circa 1500.
More ambitious psalm composition in this period is largely confined to the motet and anthem, but some composers continued issuing psalm collections, notably Sweelinck who set all 150 psalms in French metrical versions for three to eight voices, using melodies from the Genevan psalter as cantus firmi.

The psalms are the product of many individual collections (e.g., Songs of Ascents, Psa 120-134), which were eventually combined into the present work in which one can detect five "books," because of the doxologies which occur at 41:14; 72:18-19; 89:53; 106:48.
Somewhat related to the wisdom psalms are the "torah" psalms, in which the torah (instruction or law) of the Lord is glorified (Psa 1; 19:8-14; 119).
Although the majority of the psalms have a liturgical setting, there are certain prayers that may be termed "liturgies," so clearly does their structure reflect a liturgical incident (e.g., Psa 15, 24).

Some of the identifiable maleness of the piety in the Hebrew psalms he recognised in the rhetoric of war, the ideology of honour and shame, the construction of 'enemies', the role of women, the concept of solitariness, the importance of strength and height in its metaphorical system, and the practice of binary thinking.
