Proper of the Mass
Large 8” x 11” size, 60 lb. cream paper, 154 pages, spiral bound.
This is an invaluable
book for the members of the choir and schola singing the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missale Romanum
). This was the primary ‘proper’ chant book for High Mass choir members in the United States from the 1930s until Vatican II. If the Liber Usualis
is intimidating for the smaller or less experienced choir/schola, this is the answer!
The 'Proper’ Of The Mass
is set to very basic Gregorian Psalm-tones with organ accompaniment. These ‘proper’ chants for the entire year are beautiful yet simple enough for most choir members to sing with limited practice. Includes complete daily, seasonal, ember-day, ferial, common Masses, etc. Table of Contents.Also includes Preface, Instructions from the author to the organist & choir members, Preface, rules for liturgical pronunciation of Latin, notes on when to sing the various chants of the ‘proper’, and rules for good vocal production.
