Miles Coverdale, briefly Bishop of Exeter,

Miles Coverdale, Bishop of Exeter from 1551-53 under Edward VI, produced the translation of the Psalms used in the Book of Common Prayer and still sung at Evensong (and Matins) to this day. His translation owes much in style to Martin Luther’s German Psalter. The Great Bible, chained to the lectern in every Parish in England, was basically Coverdale & Tyndale’s work.
