Thanks again to the tireless labors of the folks at Corpus Christi Watershed , we now have available for the first time, as a downloadable PDF, the entire Graduale Romanum published in by Solesmes. The Church Music Association of America made the Gregorian Missal available some years ago, and it has of course the advantage of English translations for the Propers and other parts of Mass, but it is restricted to Sundays and Holy Days, whereas the Graduale Romanum is the complete book of chant for every day of the year in the Ordinary Form calendar.

The title here is more a string of keywords that bring a lot of people to this site. So, without further ado, a snippet from the Introit of Advent While it retains the use of square-notation, it is in traditional-language Rite I English.

Its base material is drawn from the current Graduale Romanum so it follows the same basic kalendar as the RCL. It also sometimes includes chants that match with the three-year lectionary but this seems rather infrequent and haphazard. Overall, this work is very nicely produced with all of the seasons, commons, propers for major saints, and votives included masses for the departed that one would need. A clear index wraps everything up. It is copyrighted, but allows photocopying for the personal use of local churches and individuals provided they give correct attribution.

Archdiocese of St. Louis Worship Resources: These appear to have both psalm tone and other settings in English with modern notation and organ accompaniment. Some of the PDFs contain handwritten scores. This site also contains some Office materials—proper Vespers settings. These may be in square notation. The one I looked at was. So far it only offers Advent, Christmas and Lent, but promises that more settings will become available as the seasons progress.

These resources are collected here. Files of the Yahoo Gregorian User Group : These are all user contributed and come in quite an array of formats, languages, etc. To access the files you must be a member of the moderated group. The group is located here. If others know of more resources, drop it in the comments or shoot me an email. Thanks so much for promoting the Gregorian group on Yahoo. I administer the group and welcome anyone who wants to join. Anyone with questions is free to contact me at scottknitter gmail.

Come join the conversation! Definitely unite them into a document! If I can help with that in any capacity drop me a line. If I may open up a brief tangent, is there any chance that you might put the full set of OJN Office Hymns in your iPublications sometime in the future? That would be a much appreciated resource.

You do know, by the way, that Derek has scanned my Advent-Lent hymns? Did you know that Gregorian chants are intellectual puzzles? I would very much like to have the entire Anglican Use Gradual in modern notation, with Rite One text. This would save a tremendous amount of time in choir rehearsal! Thanks for posting this for us. Yes, I would like to have them. Scott St. If you have an interest in the composition process used in creating Gregorian chant you may down load the first lesson from my website: Gregorian chant laws.

My new website, Gregorian chant laws, shows how four chants apply matrics design, Christ identification, Trinity motives, and fourfold method to reveal chant as intellectual puzzles contradicting the notion that chants are simple melodies and that the music derives from the text. This is lesson 1 in the reconstruction of the methods by which chant was composed.

Liber Usualis Modern Notation in English

Q: I am completing a project of translating into English and transcribing into modern notation the introit and communion antiphons of the Mass. My hope is to enable any singer, even one unfamiliar with the theory and tradition of monophony, to discover the musical truth and spiritual power of these beautiful treasures. In this effort I have noticed many discrepancies between the texts given in the missal currently used in the United States and those that are prescribed in the Graduale Romanum. The missal uses this text for all three years. The Graduale texts are almost always more related to the Scripture and themes of a particular Mass than are those in the missal. There are many other examples I could cite.

In the Summer issue of Sacred Music magazine, Jeffrey Tucker, managing editor, describes the plight of Latin in many parishes. He then offers six options that can support the chant patrimony of the Church There are parishes where the pastor has said to the schola or choir: no Latin under any circumstances, not even for the propers that the schola aspires to sing. They can chafe and complain about this edict, or they can find a workaround, still using music of the Roman Rite while employing the vernacular. Before very recently, this was a tricky proposition, but in the last year or so, everything has changed.
