Twenty-four of the most widely sung psalm settings for the church year adapted using the texts of the Revised Grail Psalter by two of the most notable composers in sacred music today.
Marty Haugen and David Haas have combined forces to retrofit some of their most beloved psalm settings from the Psalms for the Church Year series with the new Grail Psalter texts. The refrains are now faithful to the wording from the Lectionary for Mass and each of the 24 psalms in this collection now employ the precise translations from the Revised Grail Psalter. The verses on a number of the psalms have been arranged to offer performance options as either an accompanied melodic line or as a chanted psalm tone. These new arrangements are true to the new texts while still honoring the beautiful melodies of the original settings.
