This wonderfully useful book collects the authentic Gregorian Communion Antiphons from the Proper of the Mass with the Psalms appropriate to each, covering the Sundays and Solemnities of the Church Year for both the current Roman Missal, using the modern calendar with its three year cycle, and the antiphons for the 1962 Roman Missal, following the traditional calendar.
These 110 chants are pristine, verbatim recreations of those in the Solesmes editions, and cover Masses that are most likely to be sung during the year, including major feasts (under both old and new forms), and the more important seasonal and ritual Masses (Ash Wednesday, Nuptial Mass, etc.).
In accordance with the Church’s recommendation, Psalm verses in notated editions are included for each Communion antiphon. These verses are sung between repetitions of the antiphon. This book fills a gap in the existing liturgical books. ISBN 978-0-6151-8626-9

"Fabulous, Brilliant, Wonderful, Tuneful Book!" As a Roman Catholic, and a lover of the Roman Missal Latin Mass. This book is a must have for every Catholic and especially for lovers of really really good music. There is no better songs then the Psalms, and the Editor of this book really knew how to blend the Brilliants of the sacred Psalms with the Greatness of the Latin songs in the Mass. Excuse my Latin---- Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis. 'Litanies and Novenas for your Salvation' in my store check it out!
