ISBN-13: 9781640655614

An inclusive language Psalter with innovative chants that making singing the psalms accessible to all. 

As we emerge from the Covid restrictions that silenced singing, musical resources are needed, especially those that make it possible for all congregations to sing their faith. The original Psalter of the 1979 Prayer Book uses exclusively male language for God and a new version is in line with both a period of liturgical renewal and public interest in inclusivity. 

KEVIN MORONEY, PhD, serves as the H. Boone Porter Chair of Liturgics at The General Theological Seminary, where he also serves as Director of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. In 2018, he was appointed to serve a three-year term on the Task Force for Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision, a thirty-member committee created by the General Convention to explore future paths for worship in the Episcopal Church. He lives in New York City.

Julian Wachner is a multi-Grammy-nominated conductor, composer, and keyboardist and was recently named one of Musical America’s Top 30 Professionals of the Year. As Director of Music since 2010 at New York’s historic Trinity Church Wall Street, Wachner has created a world-renowned performing arts center with an annual season of hundreds of events. Dr. Wachner also currently serves as Affiliate Professor of Music and the Arts at The General Theological Seminary and as Artistic Director of the Grand Rapids Bach Festival. He lives in Nyack, NY.
