Included is the full psalmody appointed for the Easter Vigil, All Saints, the Annunciation, the Visitation, Baptism, Burial of the Dead, Ordinations, and the Celebration of a New Ministry. With this volume, the church is provided with a complete musical psalm resource and more of the fresh and singable settings for which Hawthorne is noted.
