Grail Psalms for Sunday Worship (CD)
by Bob Hurd

The Most Frequently Used Responsorial Psalms

Proclaim the word like never before with this collection of Grail Psalm settings covering more than 50 Sundays in the three-year liturgical cycle.

This beautiful collection of musical settings of the new Grail Psalms translation highlights the distinctive role the psalms play in the proclamation of the word. Reflective and contemplative, the collection appeals to all pastoral musicians looking for unique ways to enhance their liturgy. With both chants and metered music, each Psalm strikes a balance between traditional and modern styles, while the verses, intended for a single cantor, give greater clarity to the proclamation of the word.

Ranging in tone and style, this collection provides inspiration to all, and the supplemental octavo packet gives your choir everything they need to share these wonderful songs with your whole assembly. From the soft, sweet tones of Psalm 103 to the upbeat and uplifting rhythms of Psalm 98, Grail Psalms for Sunday Worship* delivers a set of responsorial psalms that will capture your parish’s attention and get them actively involved in your liturgies throughout the year.

*Many of these psalms contain different verses and refrains for use at different liturgies throughout the liturgical year. In order to hear every version of the psalm, please purchase the MP3 Album, as it will contain all of the music found within the octavos. Some tracks will not contain duplicate verses or refrains between each psalm.

Bob Hurd:
With more than 45 years of composing under his belt, Dr. Hurd knows a thing or two about music and liturgy. That might explain why so many of his songs for worship have become classics in the repertoire.
Bob Hurd has served as a teacher, composer and liturgist in various pastoral and academic settings, including Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley and St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, California. He currently teaches in the summer program of Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry.

He began composing music shortly after Vatican II when the need arose for new music in the vernacular, music that the whole assembly could sing. Thus began 45 years of composing music for the liturgy. Bob is also known as an early pioneer of bilingual and multilingual music, with compositions like "Pan de Vida" and Misa de las Américas. One of his latest offerings, The Bread of Your Word, includes eight songs for Advent, Lent, Holy Thursday, Easter season and Ordinary Time as well as the complete Santa Clara Mass. With songs that flow wonderfully like gentle streams, The Bread of Your Word offers music with a cohesive quality in terms of both melody and text.

Our Common Home was inspired by Pope Francis' Laudato Si' encyclical, with songs for liturgy and prayer from well-known OCP composers who speak to themes of care for creation, poverty, and solidarity. The collection is the brainchild of Bob Hurd who turned up rather empty-handed in his search for music that dealt with our responsibility to be good stewards of creation. After writing "Every Creature Is Sister and Brother," a song highlighting the connection between the Eucharist and environmental concerns, he decided to invite several composers to join him in writing songs based on Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home.

In 2005, he received the Good and Faithful Servant Award of the Southwest Liturgical Conference. In 2010, he received NPM’s Pastoral Musician of the Year award.

Bob’s most recent book, Compassionate Christ, Compassionate People (Liturgical Press, 2019) reflects his years of teaching, writing, composing and serving as a pastoral musician.

Bob lives in Claremont, California with his wife, Pia Moriarty, who has collaborated with him on much of his bilingual music.
