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 A wonderful book of prayer March 4, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I highly recommend this edition of the  Abbey Psalms and Canticles.  It is beautifully printed and the binding and cover are attractive.  I particularly like this translation of the Psalms.  For anyone who wants to nourish his or her prayer  life on the Psalms, this is an excellent book of prayer that easy is to use and to carry with you when you travel.

4 of 5 It’s what I asked for March 1, 2021
Reviewer: CJ from Portland, OR United States  
This book has both the new translations for the psalms and the canticles for office.  I had bought a copy of one which was accented prior to this, but it didn’t have the canticles... rather annoying.

Anyways, the book seems like good quality, but it’s too early to tell how well it will hold up after repeated use.  All and all, I’m happy with the purchase.

3 of 5 Books of Psalms February 11, 2021
Reviewer: Greg Senholzi from The Villages, FL United States  
I was disappointed in that I thought this book would give the music behind each psalm so that I could learn the music to sing the psalm to. It is just a collection of the psalms that I can read in my bible.

5 of 5 Psalms volume is great January 27, 2021
Reviewer: Mark O'Rourke from Greenville, SC United States  
I have tremendously enjoyed this hand-size volume.  I have highlighted, made notations, and marked favorite verses and themes.  Going forward, I plan to use this translation and to see it in liturgy "for length of days unending." Ps 23:6

4 of 5 The Abbey Psalms and Canticles January 13, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I have no problem with your publications and offerings, although "The Abbey Psalms" publication was somewhat high priced.  My main problem is with your high shipping prices.  I could make a purchase for $10, $20 or $30 in total and be required to pay a shipping/mailing price that comes close to the amount of the merchandise.  That causes me to be more selective in placing orders.  Why can't you ship using USPS mailing rates for parcel post or some level of mailing cost cheaper than what you currently offer?
