Following the critical success of The Portland Psalter: Book One, composer Robert Hawthorne has written additional settings of the alternate psalms and canticles appointed for the Revised Common Lectionary and for other liturgical occasions in the Book of Common Prayer lectionary. 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.

Robert A. Hawthorne is the choir director at Sunset Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon, and former minister of music at Christ Episcopal Church in Lake Oswego, Oregon. He has composed choral works for choirs in Oregon, Washington, Iowa, and Illinois. His Iron Mountain Mass, a tri-ritual (Episcopal, Roman Catholic, and Lutheran) congregational setting, is published by Oxford University Press. Hawthorne is a well-known leader of music workshops on sightsinging, cantoring, and music repertoire for parish choirs of all sizes and ages.
