This is not to say that Haas' renderings are great poetry, but they are singable/chantable in the structure of the Liturgy of the Hours (i.e. they have antiphons, can be sung in unison or antiphonally ...).
An example from Psalm 55: "If I had the winds of a dove, / I would fly away to safety. / I would fly far, / far away, / I would hide in the wilderness."
I recommend it as one of the best collections I have seen attempting to fulfil the "praying the psalms but not understanding the psalms as prayer" need.
