JOSEPH HALL, the learned Bishop of Norwich, was born in 1574, and died in 1647. He is chiefly known as an author by his prose works, and "Vergidemiarum;" but his name is introduced into these pages as the author of "The Note of Divine Meditations," in which there are some select psalms, which was published in 1607.
