Richard Chonak has very helpfully put up a page of resources for the music for the new Missal.
Latin Gregorian SettingsResources for singing the Ordinary of the Mass in Latin are available at our Latin Settings page.
The musical settings indicated here are for the Roman Missal Third Edition, which will go into use for Ordinary Form Masses in the United States in 2011.
- Official chant melodies included in the Missal;
- Optional plainsong settings based on traditional sources;
- Newly composed settings in various styles.
All these settings are presented in accord with ICEL’s policy for the use of its approved texts.
Chant Melodies from the Roman Missal Third EditionHere are some materials and resources for learning the chant melodies to be published in the new Missal. This music was provided by ICEL and adopted by the US Bishops Committee for the Liturgy. These settings will appear in the altar edition of the Missal and in worship aids.
