This is a collection of English Metrical Psalms by which it is meant, that these psalms were used as a collection in the Anglican church tradition.[1] However the book itself was a collection of Latin Psalms, chosen by Buchanan as especially illustrative of religious orthodoxy of Lutheranism of which he was a proponent. [2] Buchanan served as a tutor to Mary, Queen of Scots and later was a high serving official within the Scottish Reformed Church. [3]
