What is The Mundelein Psalter?

In order to facilitate the sung public celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, the Liturgical Institute offers The Mundelein Psalter, the first complete psalter containing the approved English texts of the Divine Office pointed for singing chant and available for public use. It is approved for use in the dioceses of the United States of America by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The text is marked to facilitate singing with the simple yet beautiful Gregorian-based tones composed by Fr. Samuel Weber, OSB, a monk of St. Meinrad Archabbey and founding faculty member of the Divinity School of Wake Forest University.

The psalter includes translations of the Latin hymns proper to each ferial day as well as a section of hymns for feasts and solemnities and features a Pastoral Implementation Guide for introducing the Liturgy of the Hours in a parish setting. 

An ideal resource for seminaries, religious communities, parishes, colleges, youth ministries, young adult groups, and high schools, it includes the entire liturgical year, sanctoral cycle, Compline and Office for the Dead.
