Is there really an advantage to including them in the Fr. Lazarus Psalter?If I'm going to buy a liturgical Psalter to use at the cliros, then it's
got to have the Biblical Odes in it. During Lent you need the Odes in
order to serve daily Matins; if my Psalter were missing the Odes, then
I'd have to have a second Psalter containing the Odes. I'd rather juggle
as few books as possible at the cliros.
Suggestion: If there's not a text by Fr Lazarus, then at a minimum you
might ask some of your editing team to work over Brenton's translation,
which is in the public domain. With some editing for accuracy and
beauty, it's at least a starting place.
