All musicians in the English-speaking world are deeply grateful to the monks of the Solesmes Abbey for permission to offer a free download of the Gregorian Missal. This extraordinary book provides the sung propers attached to the 1970 Missal, for Sundays and Feast Days, along with English translations. It is the most useful book for any Catholic music working within the framework of the ordinary form of the Roman Rite. This is a tremendous gift to the entire world. The Church Music Association of America is pleased to host this file for the monastery.
For many musicians, this will be the first time they have seen the actual music of the Roman Rite and how it is embedded within the structure of the Mass and the liturgical year.
