The versification and melody adaptations of the Heidelberg Catechism are provided by Aart Blokhuis, from Burlington, Ontario with melodies that are based on familiar Genevan Psalter and Book of Praise Hymn tunes.
Though not all samples are shown here yet, it is hoped that Lord willing, many more will be made available soon.
This is a PDF Flip Book that may be saved or printed in its entirety.
Look under the Heidelberg Catechism in Song menu bar above for some Lord’s Days with some musical settings for these created especially for classical guitar.
Selections of the Heidelberg Catechism are set in parallels for easy comparison between the actual historic text and the prose that it inspired on these individual pages as well .
A sample of the melody that was used for versification set in context of its use in congregational singing is also provided at the bottom of each page.
