Psalms 48

The music is produced automatically from the XML which itself comes from the Leningrad codex text. (I have excluded the qere for the most part though I do have code to show and interpret them.) Because this PDF is automated, there are sometimes overlaps in the Hebrew text above the notes. All PDFs and XML files are available to the public for the whole Bible as described on the Music page. There, if you have a music program that will read XML, you would be able to get the music and adjust or arrange it as you are so moved. You can also, if you don't read Hebrew, use the English translations here almost in Hebrew word sequence to sense what the music is doing for the words.
