Not really unpopular..

We have used some of these, they use the Gelineau verse tones, and the words copyright date is given as 1963, which is when I first learnt some of them while at college. This predates any English in the Mass at all.
I believe Dom Gregory Murray was using them three or four years before that.
We have often used what I think of as the 'circular' psalm, 135, on Maundy Thursday: 'Great is his love, love without end.'
Thanks Sid for reviving this thread,
