Psallite: Sacred Song for Liturgy and Life is an impressive anthology of sheet music and lyrics that will surely give any church a new array of songs that will touch souls and reinforce faith in God. With the lyrics for hundreds of gospel songs and sheet music to accompany it, Psallite is an ideal acquisition for any church library or gospel music enthusiast's collection.
Midwest Book Review
The songs are easy to use and learn with or without instruments. With easily-read type and a fold flat binding, the book is easy to use for Mass or any service.
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.

I have enjoyed playing through many of the Psallite selections and look forward to employing them in liturgy. Thanks again to the composers consortium and Liturgical Press for exploring some untapped veins of our musical-liturgical heritage.

I absolutely LOVE the concept and the Psallite music itself! I have already used psalms 25 and 23 in my husband's and my Psalms class and they were very well received! I have also used psalm 25 in the context of the Liturgy of the Word and it proved to be easily learned and very singable.
