Musical Compositions: Revised Grail Psalms

We’ve added the psalms for the Christmas season; which are available for download at the link below.

The introduction of the new Lectionary for Mass in English in South Africa has presented a few challenges. Among these challenges are that there are few musical settings of the responsorial psalms (Revised Grail Psalms, 2010) that are readily available. The responsorial psalm should of its nature be sung, if at all possible. Cameron Upchurch, Director of Music at Holy Trinity parish in Braamfontein, has begun the task of setting these texts to music. The settings are suitable for cantor (or choir) and congregation, with simple refrains and undemanding keyboard parts. They will be posted from 1st November 2012, beginning with the psalms for the Sundays of Advent. This archive will be constantly updated as new settings are completed.  The idea behind this project is that this music will be available for free download, distribution and duplication by anyone who wishes to make use of it liturgically.
