"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."

Setting propers to psalm tones with gregorio

OW TO get started typing up chant? It all depends what you want to type. Here is a video showing how easy it is to arrange the propers to psalm tones for the 4th Sunday after Pentecost.

From Benjamin Bloomfield’s Blog comes this quote from the Liber Brevior:

These abridged chants are intended exclusively for churches where it is not possible to properly execute all the melodies of the Roman Gradual and for which a simple melody of the Sacred Texts is tolerated (S. C. R. N° 3697). Where there are Choirs sufficiently trained, the official Chant of the Gradual must be kept.

I had a little technical difficulty with the video software so the picture tends to lag behind the sound, but with a bit of patience I hope it helps explain how to use the Propers Tool. And thanks to Jeff Ostrowski for the great idea to make the video while holding a baby!
