Vedas were not meant to be translated and every translation is deficient. That said, there are some good ones: Ralph T.H. Griffith's classic full translation of the Rigveda.

It is said that seven swara-s in the Indian music with the names such as Madhyama, Gandhara are related to the seven svara-s of SV indicated by the accent marks in the text of Sama Veda. Whereas Rid Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda mantra-s are chanted in a special way following certain special rules, only the Sama Veda verses are sung.
