The Bay Psalm Book was the first ever book printed in English North America . The book is a metrical Psalter , first printed in 1640 in Cambridge , Massachusetts. The Psalms in it are metrical interpretations into English. The interpretations are not especially cleaned, and not one has stayed being used, albeit a portion of the tunes to which they were sung have survived. Be that as it may, its generation, only 20 years after the Pioneers' landing in Plymouth , Massachusetts, speaks to an extensive accomplishment.

It experienced a few versions and stayed being used for sometime. The development of the neoclassical movement in Britain prompted an advancement in the singing of hymns. These progressions discovered their approach to America and therefore new song versions were composed. In the early piece of the eighteenth century a few refreshed hymns, quite those composed by Tate and Brady and by Isaac Watts, were distributed.
