I'm still using my 2001 printed copy - but I can see an order going over for a few more copies.

I ordered mine and just received it yesterday. So far I'm very impressed with this psalter- the notes, the additional material, etc. At times the translation is beautiful, though occasionally it's a bit clunky but not atrociously so.


I'm glad you have had a response from them . I've now emailed them twice as I need a little more information from them about shipping , but have had absolutely no response.

I should say it took them about 10 days to actually ship the book to me. They may not be checking their inbox very frequently.

I just got mine last week. They are not quick to answer emails , so keep trying.
I like the footnotes. The Service at the Departing of the Soul from the Body ,the Creed of Athanasiusand the "Te Deum " of St . Ambrose of Milan are additions not found in the 2000 edition.
A very nice psalter indeed! Undecided on the spiral binding, it may not hold up very well but then again it does lie flat when opened.

I live in hope that eventually I will get a response from them.

I've tried using the Contact Us from on the Website - and that does NOT work - I got this

I've had the same situation, however, without the 'problem' message! Don't they want to sell the Psalter?

That's what I'm wanting to know too .

I like the translation , I like the lay out . In fact you can sum it up as I like it.

My copy of the 2001 version is still usable - but I'd really like a few more, but .......

There are other things which take precedence however. Perhaps one of these days I'll try getting in touch again.

I got the hardback edition for $4 more and I think it'll hold up well.

Their... questionable customer service is indeed a head scratcher. I suspect they were not expecting a lot of people outside the archdiocese to be interested in their publications.

That's as may be - but it's no excuse for not responding to emails, whether sent directly to them or though their online presence.

I did not know there was a choice of bindings, I just took the first thing that popped up
Otherwise would have chosen the hard cover.
