Giving Out The Line

The unaccompanied singing of the Gaelic Psalms is a musical experience to be savoured. The lead is given by a male precentor, a presenter adept at 'giving out the line', in Presbyterian churches throughout the Hebrides as well as in the Highlands. Those not within reach and wanting to hear, should access Ridge Records and click on their audio buttons. The presenter's lead is indicated by the primary line and the congregation follows with the psalmic litany.
