Practical Auxiliary Resources to Your Hymnals
Whether you parish uses Worship-Third Edition or you simply have a single reference copy on your book shelf, this book belongs next to it.

The Hymnal Companion to Worship-Third Edition is a major contribution to the sacred music field...and a must for anyone who cares about the music we sing. (G-4607, Hardcover, 600 pages, $49.95).
Lectionary Psalms: Michel Guimont
A sampling of the creative psalm settings by this gifted Canadian composer can be found in Gather, Gather Comprehensive, and RitualSong. We are now delighted to offer the responsorial psalms for the entire three-year cycle of Sundays, solemnities, and Feasts of the Lord in one volume. The text is drawn from the revised Lectionary for Mass (NAB translation). The Guimont psalms are unique in that they are suitable for organ, piano, or guitar accompaniment. The thirty-plus original psalm tones offer harmonic freshness that makes these settings usable week after week without tiring. This one volume is a major resource for every cantor. (G-4986, Spiral bound, 8 1/2 x 11, $31.50).
The Cantor's Book of Gospel Acclamation Verses
We've taken ten of the most widely used and sung alleluias and Lenten acclamations, and set the accompanying verses for the entire Sunday Lectionary! Each acclamation has it's own corresponding tone. Popular, widely used alleluias and Lenten acclamations by Richard Proulx, Marty Haugen, David Haas, Howard Hughes, SM, Jacques Berthier (Taizé), A. Gregory Murray, OSB, Fintan O'Carroll, Steve Janco, and others, all bound into one volume useable year after year. (G-4987, Spiral bound, 8 1/2 x 11, $26.50).
Lectionary Psalms: Grail/Gelineau
The popular Gelineau Psalms associated with Worship-Third Edition have been revised to conform to the new Lectionary for Mass. This is the psalm book for use with the revised Worship and with Sunday's Word. Replace the Worship Lectionary Accompaniment. The original Grail Psalms with the incomparable psalmody of Joseph Gelineau, SJ. (G-5040, Spiral bound, 8 1/2 x 11, $32.00).
Hymns for the Gospels
Ever since the development of the three-year Sunday Lectionary, gifted hymn writers have blessed the church with a prolific outpouring of new strophic hymn texts based upon the gospels. Collaborators W. Thomas Smith (former executive director of the Hymn Society) and Robert J. Batastini (past president of the Hymn Society) have combed this extensive repertoire in search of the best of these new hymns. They have been compiled a collection that raises the "hymn of the day" concept to a new height. From today's leading hymn writers, this collection of hymns based upon or related to the gospel reading for each Sunday allows the congregation to not only hear the word of God, but sing it! Set primarily to familiar tunes for instant accessibility, this hymnal supplement provides a resource that is biblical, liturgical, practical, and certain to be used on a weekly basis throughout the years.
