The Abbey Psalms and Canticles presents some of the most moving passages of the Bible in an accurate and poetic translation, beautifully bound in a handsome edition.

Prepared by the Benedictine monks of Conception Abbey in Missouri, this translation establishes the definitive form of Psalms and canticles that will gradually appear in official Catholic liturgical books. Among other rituals, future editions of the Liturgy of the Hours and the Lectionary for Mass (both several years from completion) will use this translation. Technically precise, the translation keeps a smooth cadence especially suited to singing and recitation. The texts can also be used for personal study, devotion, and prayer.

This edition is bound with a dark stone-grey textured hard cover and adorned with gold foil stamping. Inside pages have two-color print on cream-colored paper, and special binding is used so that the book can be held open more easily. The superior craftsmanship of this book will make it a lasting companion.

Liturgy directors, composers, parish music directors, and the clergy, religious, and lay faithful who celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours will value this collection. Those who love to study and pray with Sacred Scripture will also find this work to be a timeless treasure.

5 of 5 English translation, convenient and lovely form October 22, 2020
Reviewer: Marny Benedict from Los Lunas, NM United States  
I purchased this book in order to keep up with the latest forms of psalms and canticles, and it serves that purpose well.  Additionally, it is a substantial hard bound book in a manageable size, approx. 6.75 x 4.75 inches H x W, easily hand-held.
That being said, I must add that I miss the old 23rd Psalm, that "I shall not want," and that "I shall dwell in the House of the Lord forever."  Such is the way of things, though, as I have had to accept.

4 of 5 Shopping experience September 7, 2020
Reviewer: John Halloran from San Antonio, TX United States  
To Whom It May Concern:

The book is great.  I'm just wondering about the shipping cost? Two-thirds the price of the book.  I take books to ups and the post office and never pay that much...
