The Lumen Christi Series is the work that I have been carrying since Simple English Propers, which many long-time readers of the Chant Cafe will remember began developing here back in 2010. Here is a short video on the tree that is growing out of the seed that was SEP:
The Lumen Christi Simple Gradual is the fulfillment of the hope that began with Simple English Propers, mostly due to its flexible nature, and full integration into a series of publications including a Missal, companion Hymnal, full Gradual, Accompaniment Editions, and so much more.
The renewal of parish music according to the Church’s mind on the liturgy and authentic tradition is a big task. It takes much time, wisdom, excellent resources, and great faith. Illuminare Publications has organized an effort that can provide the resources and ongoing assistance that parishes need as they undertake this most important work.
Visit the Illuminare website to learn more about the Lumen Christi Simple Gradual, and the work that lies ahead in service of the Church’s ongoing work of authentic liturgical renewal.
You can also join the Illuminare newsletter in order to receive updates as the Lumen Christi Series moves forward toward completion.
