5 Reasons 4 Taking a Closer Look at Gather—Fourth Edition

The Music

Gather IV leans toward the contemporary yet even chant is at home in this resource. Every piece of music in this edition met theological, pastoral, liturgical, and musical criteria and is representative of today’s world and the modern Catholic Church. No matter who you are, we are confident that you will see yourself in this hymnal.

The Psalter

The Gather IV Psalter includes psalms from the psalters of Michel Guimont and Joseph Gelineau as well as the Lyric Psalter, Cry Out with Joy, and Lead Me, Guide Me psalters, representing a range of composers, styles, and cultures.




GatherCloud is a digital asset available to all Gather IV users that allows you to download corresponding choral arrangements of the songs, hymns, and service music in your hymnal. Enhance your worship by singing a matching choral rendition while your congregation sings the melody.


GIA Psalm Cloud

The Design


A worthy, hardbound hymnal, the cover of Gather IV was designed with great intention and detail by graphic artist and composer Daniel Kantor. Notice how the cross is made of many individual parts coming together to create a greater whole yet, the cross is unfinished as our work is never done.
