There is a New Version of the Liturgy of the Hours … and it's known as The Mundelein Psalter

For those of you who love the Liturgy of the Hours but prefer more traditional forms and chant, the Mundelein Psalter is a beautiful work. Here are a few of the details about it:

  • 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 (lm) tune.
  • It contains 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 as well as a Pastoral Implementation Guide for the progressive implementation of the Liturgy of the Hours in a parish setting.

It can be purchased by clicking here.

  • Is it meant to be a replacement for the current Christian Prayer? I checked it out and it seems much better organized graphically and, since I prefer to chant the Office, I appreciate its emphasis on chanting.

    TIA

      Not a replacement – just an alternative. It is a beautiful work.
