The Mundelein Psalter is the first complete one-volume edition containing the approved English-language texts of the Liturgy of the Hours with psalms that are pointed for the chanting of the Divine Office. The music consists of simple yet beautiful Gregorian-based modes composed for this Psalter. The Psalter is designed for use by priests, deacons, religious, and laity, making singing the hymns of the Liturgy of the Hours easier for all.

Features of The Mundelein Psalter:

  • Translations of hymns proper to each ferial day and a selection of hymns for feasts and solemnities (taken from the editio typica).
  • Music with the ancient modal settings is provided for each hymn. Hymns are also arranged to be sung with any long meter (L.M.) tune.
  • A collection of 14 optional modes that can be used as needed.

It uses the Grail Psalms and contains Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Night Prayer. It also includes the Sanctoral cycle and the Office for the Dead. "A Pastoral Implementation Guide for the progressive implementation of the Liturgy of the Hours in a parish setting. Hospitable. Durable. Faithful. Flexible: In its beautiful, clear layout of the canonical Office text, pointed and coupled with elemental chant tones, The Mundelein Psalter allows newcomers to the Liturgy of the Hours to participate with ease.  These same features, grounded to the bedrock of liturgical and musical tradition, wear well even with those who sing the Divine Office daily.
