SKU: SRP204 Category:

Every psalm response for the three year lectionary cycle! An essential resource for every parish.

This collection of responsorial psalms is an attempt to bring back to every parish the practice of singing of the psalms at every liturgy. Most parish musicians don’t have the time to learn a full psalm setting each week and these simple psalm refrains are designed to be easily played and sung. The numbering of the psalms are according to the Roman Missal.

In the Catholic tradition, psalms are often given a different number to other Christian traditions. For example, the psalm “The Lord Is My Shepherd” is often known as Psalm 23, whereas in the Catholic tradition it is Psalm 22. The words, however, remain the same regardless of the assigned numbering.

Each psalm is written in a key that everyone can sing, and includes guitar chords, piano music, and a melody line. You will note that some psalms are repeated throughout the collection, however the verses differ according to the lectionary cycle, solemnity, feast, memorial or season. Instead of having common refrains and verses on different pages, this collection was designed to have everything musicians and singers need in one place. Included, too, are two seasonal psalms (Lent and Easter) which are full settings that can be used throughout those respective seasons.

In addition to offering every psalm response for every Sunday, this collection includes psalms for special feasts and celebrations including Australia Day, ANZAC Day, St Patrick, Our Lady Help of Christians and Saint Mary of the Cross (MacKillop).

“It is hoped that this collection will encourage communities everywhere to sing as one voice in praise of our good God.” Amanda McKenna
