The WodePsalter app accompanies the Singing the Reformation free exhibition taking place at the University of Edinburgh from 6 August to 28 October 2011.
The Wode or St Andrews Psalter comprises an important collection of manuscript musical part books of the Psalms. It is named after Thomas Wode, vicar of St Andrews, who, under the patronage of James Stewart, Earl of Moray, copied and compiled the books between 1562 and 1592.
The exhibition is based around the Wode Part-books with all eight of them gathered for the first time from across the world and on display together. The visitor can also view contemporary manuscripts, paintings, books, needlework and maps that combine to re-create the world of Reformation Scotland.
Use the app to explore in more detail some of the objects on display, examine samples of the transcribed scores from the part books and listen to excerpts of the music.
