This wonderfully useful book in hardcover collects the authentic Gregorian Communion Antiphons from the Proper of the Mass with the Psalms appropriate to each, covering the... More > 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 liturgical disciplines), 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, either singly or in pairs, are sung between repetitions of the antiphon. This book fills a gap in the existing liturgical books.< Less
