Want to sing psalms? Here's the place to start.
A Manual of Plainsong - quite simply the book to have if you intend to introduce a spot of plainsong, whether it's to give some variety in Lent or Advent or simply because of the hypnotic beauty of plainchant. There are detailed directions on singing the music, plus a good collection of psalms, canticles, litany and communion responses. Recommended.
The Parish Psalter - the definitive book of the psalms from the Book of Common Prayer, pointed for singing. Used in pretty well every church in the UK that sings evensong. Available in two versions, with and without the chant sheet music.
We have second-hand copies of the version without chants available from our second-hand sheet music page.
The Amazon.co.uk link below is for the version with chants.
The New Cathedral Psalter Chants (82) - the updated version of this compact chant book. This is the trendy 1909 'two star' version with a better range of singable chants.
The Anglican Psalter - Renamed version of the New St Paul’s Cathedral Psalter. Some settings not suitable for congregations, but an excellent psalter for choirs, with some stunning chants, which is well worth having a copy of.
