Gregorian Chant for Church and School, by Sister Mary Antonine Goodchild.
What a wonderful find this is: an ideal textbook on chant for junior high, high school, or really any age. It is mercifully free of verbiage or exaggerated detail. It is short and super clear on all aspects of learning to chant (notes, rhythm, Latin, style), and it contains a vast amount of the basic repertoire, in neumes and with English translations. It even has study questions!
Many of us have wish that such a book would be written. It took Fr. Samuel Weber to point out that such a book already exists, and now it is in print again. As the title says, it is the perfect text for Church and school. It came out in 1944 but it isn’t in the slightest bit dated. This is price for mass distribution.
We are pleased to make available a Kyriale extract from the Graduale, with helpful navigation links. The other edition linked on this site is also excellent but it lacks the Solesmes-style rhythmic markings. Thus does this pdf edition fill a gap in our online resources.
The book contains all the Mass settings plus Psalm tones for readings and the Gloria Patri, plus chants for Corporus Christi, fully 160 pages in a format that is far easy to manage that the full Graduale. It is the true “people’s songbook” for the Roman Rite. You can easily copy images using Adobe reader. The scan is 300 dpi.
In addition, the Kyriale is available in both softcover ($12) and hardcover ($22) here.
