"...there is an additional reason for clergy and musicians of the Church to celebrate for they have received another gift that will be of the greatest help to them in planning for the worship of their congregations.

St. Martin's Psalter, Ecumenical Edition
St. James Music Press © 2004, 2007

A Collection of over 550 Pointed Psalms, Psalm tones & Antiphons based on Hymn Tunes and Other Familiar Melodies

"Mr. Thomas Pavlechko's St. Martin's Psalter should go a long way in helping our congregations participate in and enjoy singing the psalms. His instructions are concise and clear, the pointing is natural and musical, and the use of familiar seasonal hymn tunes make the chants easily accessible and singable. I recommend it." --William Teague, Organist/Choirmaster Emeritus, St. Mark's Cathedral (Episcopal), Shreveport, Louisiana; Concert Artist with Karen McFarlane

"These fresh settings give new life to congregational psalm singing. We [at the Choristers Guild] are especially pleased that children's choirs can serve as leaders." --Jim Rindelaub, Executive Director, Choristers Guild, Dallas, Texas

"The St Martin's Psalter is a great hit! The Dean and I both expected it not to be and are almost ecstatic at the response. People really sing the antiphons, the choir loves the harmonizations and I have used just about every imaginable configuration of the harmonies to accommodate the choir on Sundays. After years of struggle that had me on the verge of asking permission to skip the Psalms and use hymns (I even used improvisational liturgical dance as a threat), this Psalter has restored the balance between choir and congregation and made the Psalms singable and enjoyable for everyone." --Michael Burroughs, Director of Music, Trinity Cathedral (Episcopal), San Jose, California
St. Martin's Psalter, ELW Lutheran Edition
Augsburg Fortress, released 2012 (CD-ROM), by Thomas Pavlechko (Arranger)

St. Martin's Psalter is a collection of all the psalms assigned by the Revised Common Lectionary, set to tones based on well-known hymn tunes, in Anglican chant style. The familiarity of the tunes both helps to make a connection with the day of season (for instance, a tone based on "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" is used during Advent) and makes it easier for the congregation to sing the psalm. Each psalm is provided with a refrain or antiphon, often also related to the hymn tune. The settings are flexible enough to be used by any combination of congregation, cantor, and choir.

This CD-ROM contains complete graphic files for all the Revised Common Lectionary psalms and their refrains. Purchasers of this product are granted permission to make all necessary copies for use by their choirs and congregations.
