This book contains the one hundred fifty psalms of David set to plainsong psalm tones with antiphons as selected and compiled by Howard E. Galley, Jr. Originally, they were published in The Psalter section of his The Prayer Book Office. Where no antiphons exist in that resource, editor James Litton has followed the work of Dr. Richard Crocker and Ronald Haizlip in the Gradual Psalms both in choice of psalm tone and method of pointing or other current resources.

This psalter is intended for use in the Daily Office. Contains a preface, an introduction and performance notes. The Appendix also contains examples of the psalm tones and their various endings.
