Presentation of the Lord: Free English Chant Downloads for This Sunday

This is a syndicated post from The Chant Café. [Read the original article...]

This year we will experience liturgical feasts and solemnities in an unusually powerful way. Unless we are regular daily Mass goers, most of us rarely encounter the Presentation of the Lord, the Solemnity of SS. Peter and Paul, the Triumph of the Cross, the Feast of All Souls, and the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica.

But this year these all fall on a Sunday, and therefore trump the the Sundays in Ordinary Time that would otherwise be celebrated.

This Sunday, for example, will not be the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Church universal will instead celebrate the Presentation of the Lord, and will have an opportunity to engage parishioners in the iconic and ancient blessing of candles and procession before Mass.

The 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal offers some of the chants for the procession, both in Gregorian chant and in a few English chant adaptations.

Illuminare Publications is happy to offer a digital edition for free download, that contains all of the chants for this liturgy, including the ones that the Roman Missal leaves out.

Additionally, you will find the full Proper of the Mass in simple English chant settings, utilizing the new translation of the Roman Missal, in both cantor/choir and accompaniment editions.

You can download them here:
