Using the Revised Grail Psalms—designated to be the official English-language Psalter used in future Roman Catholic liturgical books—each of the settings in this collection can be performed using organ, piano, or guitar.The verses can be sung by a solo cantor or by SATB choir.This current edition includes ten new refrain settings and seven new psalm tones.While this collection may be used as a Lectionary psalter, regardless of what musical resource is found in the pew, this edition is uniquely linked to Gather, Third Edition
