Supplemental Tones for ELH Psalmody

Here are some additional Psalm tones for use with the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary, which only provides four tones. If you use ELH or a hymnal with a similar form of chant tones, these supplemental melodies may add a bit of freshness and variety to your worship music. I co-wrote these over the holidays with a friend of mine, who uses ELH in his parish. You'll notice they all start on an A, which is required by the liturgy in ELH. Feel free to transpose them as needed.
