English Chant Settings of the Ordinary of the Mass

This page presents options for singing the Ordinary of the Mass in English, with texts from the Roman Missal Third Edition and melodies adapted from Latin chants.

Like the melodies printed in the Missal, many of these settings are derived from traditional Gregorian melodies in the Graduale Romanum. The settings marked “Simplex” below are derived from the Graduale Simplex and are suitable for choirs beginning to learn chant.

The editorial team includes Aristotle Esguerra, Arlene Oost-Zinner, Michael Lawrence, and others.
