NOW AVAILABLE... NO COST to you at all...

At the Chabanel Psalms website:
Two added Psalm settings by yours truly:

1) Proclaim His Marvelous Deeds (Psalm 96) for Sunday II (Year C)

2) Your Words, Lord, Are Spirit and Life (Psalm 19) for Sunday III (Year C) and the Sunday XV (Year C, second option)

The second appears to be in the form of a straightforward chant style. The first has a metrical refrain (6/8 time, with a descant), with chant-style verses that end with a hint of Peloquin influence in the organ accompaniment. In fact, those who might have used my own Today Is Born Our Savior (which comes with antiphon parts for two trumpets in B-flat, handbells, and timpani, as well as descant) might recognize the Psalm tone. (Like Joseph Gelineau did with his Psalms in the '50s and '60s, I keep the Psalm tone the same for the Psalm verses, regardless of its antiphon.)
