Matthew Britt’s masterful dictionary from 1928 provides a close examination of the Latin words in the Psalter, examining each for its origin, history, meaning, translations, use in the liturgical structure and much more. This is an indispensable tool for composers and Latinists and anyone interested in the meaning of the Latin Psalter. It solves many riddles and questions that are raised by those saying the Divine Office or working on translations of passages. Fr. Britt’s work is truly for the ages.
