      The Psalter of The Book of Common Prayer is indeed Miles Coverdale's
      translation and is based upon Jerome's Vulgate (which was based upon the
      Hebrew, his Gallican Psalter was based upon the LXX) , Pagnini's Latin
      version of 1528, Luther's German version, the Zurich Bible of 1531 and
      Tyndale's version (or possible in place of Tyndale), Desidedrius Erasmus's
      Latin Version.

      Documentation for this comes from The Cambridge History of the Bible: The
      West from the Reformation to the Present Day. Edited by S. L. Greenslade.
      Cambridge University Press, 1963. page 148
