SAINT Dunstan's Plainsong Psalter is the culmination of three full years of research, compilation, and proofreading. It is the first traditional English plainchant publication to be in print for many decades. Moreover, it is the first publication of its kind to include all elements necessary for the recitation of the Daily Offices of the classic Book of Common Prayer according to the ancient Gregorian chant tradition. Saint Dunstan's Plainsong Psalter was produced jointly by Western Rite Orthodox and traditional Anglican scholars and editors, and it may also be of interest to Roman Catholics (especially of the "Anglican Use") as well as by Protestants who appreciate the classic English biblical texts and the plainchant tradition. The Psalter is a high quality HARDCOVER book, of over 500 pages.

SOME REVIEWS OF THE PSALTER

"Saint Dunstan's Plainsong Psalter is a handsomely published volume of quite traditional materials: the time-honored Coverdale psalter, canticles, preces and suffrages – everything necessary to chant the Daily Office in traditional language and plainchant. Perusal of this book unearths a number of real gems: tones and instructions for chanting the lessons and the collects of the office, many rare but beautiful psalm tones in simple and solemn forms, historical and practical text chapters, ornate invitatory antiphons, the traditional Marian anthems to conclude the office. It takes some getting used to, but the book . . . quickly becomes a trusted guide to a fully sung Daily Office, with congregations or in private. Its publishers seem committed to traditional language and have done beautiful work with this book . . . [t]his psalter's musical offerings renew the attractiveness of a chanted Rite I office in parishes and homes." – From a review by Scott Knitter, in Living Church Magazine

"I wish to thank you most sincerely for this precious gift which you have prepared and offered to the Church. May it be blessed to God's glory, and may you be granted many years!." – His Grace, the Right Reverend Basil (Essey) of Wichita, Auxiliary Bishop, Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America

"The Psalter is excellent, beyond my highest hopes and expectations. It’s startling that you have produced a book of such quality, handsomely formatted, nicely printed, handy in size, with consistently excellent scholarship. I thought such superiority in Christian liturgical books came to a close somewhere around 1935." – Fr. J.B.M. [Anglican]

"You are to be congratulated.  Regardless of how actually successful the volume may be in terms of numbers sold, the right-minded effort which went into seeing it through to production will be well received in Heaven, since after all, as important as outer efforts are, as manifestations of inward prayer, what goes on in secret in the closet is what in the end counts. I have no doubt in my mind that the Psalter does indeed represent a turning point on the narrow road up the mountain." – Prof. R.P.T. [Orthodox]

 

 

"What a triumph! This is splendid! Many thanks for all you have done for the Western Rite. Thank you for the book: in every way!" – Rev. Fr. C.C.D.L. [Orthodox]

"The Psalters arrived yesterday in perfect condition. What a wonderful Prayer Book for faithful! Thank you for your labors in this effort." – Seminarian P.M. [Lutheran]

"I am perusing the new material in the Psalter. The Ritual and Ceremonial chapter is particularly interesting and helpful. For its one inch thickness it is very dense with matter to be learned and absorbed. The hardcopy dimensions are very pleasing as well. Its artful construction . . . is pleasing and easy to use." – Mr. S.G. [Orthodox]

"I cannot delay any longer in writing to express my sincere thanks for Saint Dunstan's Plainsong Psalter. It will be for us a source of inspiration [for my wife and me] as we say the Daily Offices together. It is exciting to learn of the wonderful acceptance of your work in many parts of the world. I congratulate you on the production of such a magnificent addition to the worship of the Church." – Rev. Fr. N. M. [Anglican]

"I have been the proud owner of Saint Dunstan's Psalter for about a week now. I must say that it is an absolute blessing and wonder! . . . Thank you for making this material accessible." – Mr. J.R.S.Z. [Orthodox]

"I want to commend your splendid work on Saint Dunstan's Psalter . . . My deep appreciation to all who worked on this remarkable project . . . God bless your good work." – Fr. S.W. [Roman Catholic, Benedictine]

"I am in receipt of my copy of Saint Dunstan's Psalter. What an excellent piece of work it is, too! I am only beginning to discover its treasures . . . Many thanks for a terrific book – a wonderful resource for an orthodox, traditionally-minded person such as myself. Now all I need are a few other such persons, so we can begin to use this Psalter in community for the regular singing/recitation of the Office!" – Mr. T.H. [Anglican]

"Our St. Dunstan Psalters have arrived, and I am very pleased with them.  You have done a great service in publishing this Coverdale psalter . . . [it] is very well done and will be of great use to us in the liturgy. " – Fr. J.M. [Roman Catholic]
