John Calvin promoted the use of Psalms and other Scripture songs for worship. The Genevan Psalter, which he initiated, was published in 1562. Among the 150 Psalms were 25 by William Kethe, including Psalm 100. When he returned to Scotland in 1561, he took the Psalter with him. All of his Psalms were included in the 1564 version of the English Psalter.
