It gives us a resource to reintegrate into our celebrations the ancient practice of singing the psalms at the entrance and communion processions. Such fine contemporary settings are a welcome addition to the repertoire of parish liturgical music.
. . . the collection is deeply pastoral in the models it provides for music to open/close the celebration, to proclaim God's Word, and to draw communicants to/from holy communion.

This is an amazing project both in its scope and in its vision for congregational song! . . . Highly recommended!

Psallite has become an invaluable resource as I prepare various liturgies in the parish and diocese. I find the music accessible for groups of all ages, and our assemblies sing the refrains with ease after hearing them once or twice. For me, the outstanding aspect of Psallite is that our assemblies are singing the liturgy! This is what we should be doing, and Psallite provides the perfect way for us to introduce this practice.
