Responsorial Psalms for Weekday Masses

There are many outstanding liturgical resources available out there that do not receive the attention they deserve, and would be difficult to discover even if you need that you could use them. I just came across an outstanding example: Responsorial Psalms for Weekday Masses in Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. They are put together by Fr. Anthony Ruff. They are just wonderful. The antiphon is simple and dignified plainsong, and the Psalms follow a tone with a pointed text and there is a best option of all, in my own view: a choral version of the verses on the same page. This is just a great book that will dramatically enhance the experience of daily Mass. Congratulations to Liturgical Press for backing such great projects! It is $34 but worth every bit.
