This edition (released in 2015) subtitled “Gregorian Melodies,” contains the complete Order of Mass, seven chant Masses, the Requiem Mass, four sequences and forty familiar hymns and other chants — music that every congregation should hear and sing! As stated in the Preface, “This book contains simple Gregorian chant pieces edited in order to promote the chant among the people in church,” The music is in chant notation, but without the florid melismas, so the selections are easier to read. Though the chant remains set with Latin text, the side-by-side translations offer a doorway to understanding this treasure of the Church. It is the hope of this volume that “… these [chants] of the Roman liturgy …will contribute to strengthen enthusiasm for the liturgy.” This small volume should find a place in many congregations wishing to introduce the chant into the liturgy.
This book includes favorite chants such as Adoro te, Ave Verum, Iesu Dulcis Memoria, O salutaris hostia, Tantum Ergo, Salve Regina, and many more!
This is a Liturgical Book for the Ordinary form of the Roman Rite, though many of the chants can also be used for the Extraordinary form.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
