"Singing the Mass" Now Available from Solesmes

Christopher Barlow writes to inform us that the new Solesmes edition Singing the Mass is now available for purchase at their newly revamped webstore.

This book contains chant settings in Latin and English, in square notation, for the Order of Mass and the Ordinary of the Mass (i.e. it contains no settings of the Proper). It contains variant settings of the Pater Noster so that it can be used equally in the United States, the UK and Australia.

Mr. Barlow has informed us that Solesmes is offering a 50% discount for orders of 50 or more. The book retails at €25.

This volume is a very exciting sign of progress in our present chant revival. Nothing like it has come before from Solesmes.
