English Propers: Ash Wednesday

Cantor scores that accompany the Lumen Christi Missal have now been posted for Ash Wednesday. This includes the Entrance, Offertory, and Communion antiphons of the "Simple Gradual", the Responsorial Psalm and Gospel Verse, in addition to full simple chant settings of the antiphons for the distribution of ashes as they are found in the new edition of the Roman Missal.

There are through-composed settings of the traditional antiphons in settings that parish cantors and choirs can readily sing, and also in this score you will find at simple congregational antiphon, "Blot out my transgressions, O Lord", with verses from Psalm 51 (50), as it is prescribed in the Roman Missal.


Similar scores for Lent and Holy Week are coming shortly.
