Glory be to Jesus Christ!

Which Psalter(s) is/are in use among the faithful of the Eastern Churches (Catholic and Orthodox)?

Has anyone heard of, or used, the 'Grail' Psalter. If so, would they recommend this for either private or liturgical use?

God bless!

The Grail is still used amongst Catholics; others that are used are the Psalter of the Seventy from Holy Transfiguration Monastery (HTM) or one of the two OCA translations, one from Canada and one from Holy Myrrhbearers.

The Grail Psalter is what is used in the Roman Liturgy of the Hours, and I believe in the Mass in England. It is my personal favorite translation of the Psalms.

I use the psalter of the Seventy (HTM) for my personal prayers.
