I’m very happy that my new copies of the classic editions of Ward singing tutorials have arrived. They are beautiful, and very exciting in so many ways – just to have them back in print is itself fabulous, and it goes without saying that they have stood the test of time.
The CMAA has put together a selection of some seriously fun products, including several Cantate Domino shirts (“Sing a New Song!”) that print the authentic Gregorian chants and mugs and magnets that do the same. And have you ever thought of a Dies Irae clock? One now exists. Or consider: a baby’s bib with the communion chant “Introibo” printed, including the words that translate “to God who giveth joy to my youth.”
