Ever since Arlene started composing these Psalms a few years ago, we have used them at our parish with great success! This is by far a simple but elegant way to present the Responsorial Psalm and is certainly easy enough to learn at even the smallest parish. Bravo Arlene!

This book presents in chant notation every Psalm for the 3-year cycle of the Roman Catholic Lectionary. It is well worth the time to read Arlene's Introduction of the book to understand the drive behind its publication. Many times as a Catholic music director I'm not pleased with what is in publication for use at Mass because of the "feel" or the "changing of text to fit the music" and this book gives me, in a direct way, the appointed Psalm for the Day. Because it is in chant notation and meant to be sung unaccompanied it can be a bit scary forcing those who want to use it into an awkward feeling of "I can't pull this off" but coupled with Rice's "The Parish Book of Chant" and using the "Guide to Singing Chant" from his book, will provide music ministers who lack formal training in chant an opportunity to present the appointed Psalm in a musical way that honors our tradition as Roman Catholics. The text is all in English you just have to take the time to learn the chant notation.

This year we used these psalms at our large, suburban parish on Holy Thursday, good Friday, and the Easter Vigil. They were one of the musical highlights of the Triduum. I will definitely plan to use them again this year

We've been using the psalms at our parish for about a year now without organ accompaniment, and the congregation sings them well!
