CMAA Forum Highlight: Simple Latin Propers

For those of you musicians out there who haven't already joined and become a member of the CMAA forum, you should! In addition to learning from others, and networking with other musicians, you get to see many of the newest projects in the sacred music world, even before they are "publicly" released.
