The Psalms in the Byzantine Book of Prayer and Byzantine Daily Worship are from the Septuagint Psalter translated by Baron Jose De Vinck and Fr. Leonidas Contos and published by Alleluia Press. It is the offical Psalter of the Melkite Catholic Eparchy and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, the Pittsburgh Metropolia uses it and the Grail Psalter. Light and Life has it.http://www.light-n-life.com/shopping/order_product.asp?ProductNum=SEPT050

Thanks for the heads up, Fr. Lance. BTW, I presume that the Metropolia uses the Grail Psalter
as published in the LOTH and not the newer "inclusive language" version. IMHO the Grail Psalter
is OK. It reads out loud better than the NAB Psalter
. I refer to the 1970 edition not the recently revised inclusive language 1986 NAB Psalter
. I find the NAB Psalter
easy to read. It just doesn't sound all that great when proclaimed publicly IMHO.
