Sing the Gospel (easily)

Edward Shaeffer has done a fantastic thing by putting together a book of fully notated Gospels (English lectionary) for Sundays and major feasts.

The book is:

EVANGÉLIA CANTÁTAA NOTATED BOOK OF GOSPELS
Revised Edition
FROM THE
LECTIONARY FOR MASS
FOR USE IN THE DIOCESES OF THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
SECOND TYPICAL EDITION
SUNDAYS, SOLEMNITIES,
SELECTED FEASTS OF THE LORD AND OF THE SAINTS


It is available right now for $69. Looking through it, it is very striking to see how easy it makes singing the Gospel once the issues of pointing and formulas are eliminate. It is truly the case that every celebrant can do this.

This volume is:

Concordat cum originali:
Most Reverend Gregory M. Aymond
Chairman, USCCB Committee on Divine Worship
after review by Reverend Monsignor Richard B. Hilgarter
Executive Director, USCCB Secretariat of Divine Worship
Published with the approval of the Bishops Committee on the Liturgy,
