"Five stars is not enough to rate this excellent resource, edited by some of the brightest musical and liturgical minds in today's church. The most comprehensive psalter ever published, Psalms for All Seasons includes musical settings of all 150 psalms, most with multiple offerings in a wide range of musical styles. Worship planners will discover both responsorial and metrical settings, from chant to a hip-hop-inspired work; composers come from around the globe and from every era of Christian music. Some psalms have ten or more settings to choose from. The psalms are also arranged for corporate reading. Performance notes and psalm prayers are included as well."
