The Lyric Psalter is a comprehensive resource from Tony Alonso and Marty Haugen that includes lyrical settings of the complete three-year cycle of Psalms from the Lectionary for Mass. It uses texts from The Revised Grail Psalms, designated to be the official English-language Psalter used in future Roman Catholic liturgical books. These psalms are designed to be a complete resource that will provide lyrical settings of the Lectionary psalms for use in worship for the entire Lectionary cycle. Haugen and Alonso’s melodies, both familiar and new, beautifully express the outpouring of deep personal emotion communicated through these most ancient poems, songs, and prayers. This comprehensive musical resource with which to cry out, will add variety and beauty to your repertoire of responsorial psalms.

The first edition in this series of four complete volumes includes psalms for solemnities, feasts, and other occasions of the liturgical year like Thanksgiving, Labor Day, and Independence Day.  The year C edition has been made available in time for use during the 2013 liturgical year.  These psalms are designed to be a complete resource that will provide lyrical settings of the Lectionary psalms for use in worship for the entire Lectionary cycle. Be sure to complete your library with years A and B to come.
