“French Psalms”

This would probably be the music of the French Huguenot Protestants.

http://spindleworks.com/music/hugo/psautier.htm

gives some sample pages of a French Psalter and some midi tunes, but I don’t see any harmonies here for Sam and friend.

This page

http://www.credenda.org/issues/11-5musica.php

tells of Goudimel, who harmonized all the Psalms.

It sounds as if LeJeune’s work on the Psalms

http://www.goldbergweb.com/en/history/composers...

would have been beyond two men singing together at home.

Finally, this page makes a very emotional statement about the appeal of the Psalms to the Huguenots:
