The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, or “Candlemas”, occurs this Saturday, February 2nd. Many people have been asking for English propers for this liturgy which is a uniquely beautiful liturgy with an iconic blessing of candles and procession before the Mass. This liturgy is engrained in the Catholic consciousness and should be celebrated to its full, solemn capacity.
The chants that are found in the new edition of the Roman Missal are found also in the Lumen Christi Missal, and I have now posted the cantor edition that complements these selections, and provides pointed psalm verses and musical settings for all of the texts of this liturgy that are meant to be sung.
