The Mundelein Psalter
The Liturgical Institute, Douglas Martis
"The Church's prayer must be allowed to speak for itself, to express the joy and grief, the anguish and elation of God's children across the ages and around the globe. This volume hopes to offer an opening to the radical beauty of the Judeo-Christian prayer, in an accessible, comprehensible way," from the Introduction.
The Mundelein Psalter is the first complete one-volume edition containing the approved English-language texts of the Liturgy of the Hours with psalms that are pointed for the chanting of the Divine Office. The music consists of simple yet beautiful Gregorian-based modes composed for this Psalter. Developed at the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary, the Psalter is designed for use by priests, deacons, religious, and laity, making singing the hymns of the Liturgy of the Hours easier for all. The Mundelein Psalter offers communities the opportunity to come together in prayer and celebrate the Divine Office as it was intended, with voices raised.

“The Mundelein Psalter is an excellent resource for any religious community or parish that wishes to pray the Liturgy of the Hours. Artistically set, The Mundelein Psalter makes use of the approved English-language texts of the Liturgy of the Hours. It uses beautiful, easily singable Psalm tones, making it an ideal prayer resource for parish and school communities. The hymnal is another excellent benefit--using the classic Office Hymns of the Church. The Sanctoral Cycle includes saints canonized by John Paul II. The Mundelein Psalter will serve as a lasting contribution to the sung prayer of the Church.”
Rev. Jordan Kelly. O.P.

Archdiocese of Chicago
its beautiful, clear layout of the canonical Office text, pointed and coupled
with elemental chant tones, The Mundelein Psalter allows newcomers to the Liturgy
of the Hours to participate with ease. These same features, grounded to the
bedrock of liturgical and musical tradition, wear well even with those who sing
the Divine Office daily. The Mundelein Psalter is the ideal resource for every
scale of celebration, from small groups of parishioners singing daily prayers
together to solemn choral vespers amplified with polyphonic antiphons and canticles.
Most amazing is its universal embrace in gatherings of priests in our diocese.
‘This was the first time I really prayed in this group,’ remarked
“The Mundelein Psalter is an answer to our prayers, a most welcome solution for our prayers.”

experienced singing the Office using the psalm tones of The Mundelein Psalter
while I was a seminarian at Mundelein. The psalm tones of the Psalter are fresh
new tones based on the traditional modes. Now as a priest at the Shrine of Our
Lady of San Juan del Valle, I am using The Mundelein Psalter for Sunday Lauds
and Vespers. Every Sunday we have many pilgrims and visitors who join us for
the Liturgy of the Hours. Because the tones found in The Mundelein Psalter are
so people friendly and flexible, we are able to sing the Office in English and
Spanish with ease.”
Rev. Gregory Labus
Pastor, Our Lady of Mercy Parish
“The Mundelein Psalter is perfect for the parish setting. The tones are beautifully presented, as well as very accessible, which makes it ideal for use in a parish community. I had the privilege of praying the Psalter while studying liturgy and found that it brought me to a much deeper place in my prayer life. I would strongly recommend the Mundelein Psalter to any parish community, as it embraces the rich tradition of chant in the Catholic Church.”
