Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

During the offering of the burnt-offering, until it was ended, the whole congregation stood worshipping; and the song of the Levites, accompanied by the music of the stringed instruments and the trumpet-blowing of the priests, continued. משׁורר השּׁיר, "the song was singing," stands for "the body of singers sang;" and the trumpets also stand for the trumpeters.
