The HymnTune Psalter, an immediate success throughout the church when it debuted in 1998, has now been revised and reorganized for the Revised Common Lectionary. Book 2 contains all the psalms for Sunday worship during the Season after Pentecost.

These settings are ideal for congregations new to psalm singing because the refrains are based on familiar hymn tunes. The chants are in the Simplified Anglican Chant style which may be sung by the choir or a cantor. Explore the ancient practice of singing psalmody; enjoy unity with other mainline denominations who follow this lectionary.
