About this blogger:
Father Gabriel Lalemant won the crown the martyrdom on 17 March 1649. The smallest and most delicate in health among all the Jesuit missionaries, he had in six months won, by his iron will and unwavering determination, a martyr's end, in companionship with the spiritual and physical giant of the missions, Jean de Brébeuf.

We sternly urge adherence to the established norms by those who raise an uproar or a challenge in the name of a misunderstood creative freedom, and thus inflict so much harm on the Church with their rash innovations, so vulgar, so frivolous—and sometimes even lamentably profane. Otherwise the essence of dogma and obviously of ecclesiastical discipline will be weakened, in line with the famous axiom: "lex orandi, lex credendi." We therefore call for absolute loyalty so that the rule of faith may remain safe.

ORGAN ACCOMPANIMENTSORDINARY OF THE MASSCOMPLETE GREGORIAN CHANT MASSESFirst published in 1937, this organ accompaniment has in modern notation all of the standard Kyriale Ordinaries (I – XVIII), the Credo versions I-VI, and the Asperges (including one ad libitum) and Vidi aquam chant. And for choirs that are not proficient enough yet to sing the propers of the Requiem Masses a cappalla, Bragers generously provided the accompaniments for their propers and Kyriale and the other funeral functions; i.e.: the entrance of the casket into the church (Subvenite), the in Exsequiis (Miserere) absolution ceremony (Libera me, responses and Benedictus), and the concluding antiphon, In Paradisum. Of course what Gregorian Chant organ accompaniment manual is complete without supplying some of the ad libitum modes for the Kyriale? Bragers succeeds here too admirably with cantus ad libitum chants for I – XI of the Kyrie, I – III and more ambrosiano of the Gloria, I – III of the Sanctus and I & II of the Agnus Dei. Throughout the entire book, the organ notation is underscored by the Latin words, hyphenated under each appropriate note (which assists with proper pronunciation of liturgical Latin, too). Fully indexed, all notations and text are in printed in black ink on medium stock paper to ensure durability, while the spacious comb-binding gives the organist easy and quick access. Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, Ite missa est). This is a must-have for organists who play for the Tridentine Latin Mass!

Bragers’ Kyriale contains organ accompaniments according to the Solesmes rhythmic markings.
