This collection of Gelineau psalm settings is a significant resource for celebrations of the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, or any worship experience that includes the Liturgy of the Word. Some of the antiphons are drawn from the Lectionary for Mass, many are taken from the Liturgy of the Hours, while other antiphons are drawn from the Simple Gradual, making these versatile psalm settings suitable to accompany entrance and communion processions as well.

While psalms are traditionally understood as song for cantor and assembly performance, this collection explores many choral possibilities. Depending upon the choice of antiphon, and using one or more of the choral approaches outlined in the introduction to this collection these psalms can become highly satisfying choral literature.

For almost sixty years, the Grail-Gelineau psalm system remains as appealing today as when it first appeared. Once you delve deeper into this system of chanting, you are likely to discover a level of artistic beauty not commonly experienced in singing the psalms.
