Blest Are Those Who Love You is the ultimate resource for pastors, cantors, organists, brides-to-be, and anyone who is looking for the best in wedding music. Every inclusion conforms to the Roman Catholic Church’s new Order of Celebrating Matrimony (2016). Inside you’ll find the appointed wedding psalms (using the official Revised Grail translation) in three distinct settings—Guimont, Gelineau, and The Lyric Psalter; a dozen appropriate gospel acclamations with the official verses; and a wide array of beloved psalm settings for use in the Liturgy of the Word or throughout the wedding rite.
All of the songs in this edition may be sung as a solo, but each selection also has an optional part for congregation. Additionally, many of these songs originally appeared as choral octavos; the settings included here are fully compatible with those original editions.
