"That good youth, recognizing the dangers in which he was involving himself in so perilous a journey, declared at his departure that the desire of serving God was leading him into a country where he surely expected to meet death." — Fr. Jerome Lalemant, speaking of St. Jean de Lalande

“Since the ability of Francisco Guerrero is now abundantly known to all […] he shall henceforth act as master of the boys so long as: ( 1) he must teach them to read, write, and to sing the responsories, versicles, antiphons, lessons, and kalends, and other parts of divine service; (2) he shall teach them plainchant, harmony, and counterpoint, his instruction in counterpoint to include both the art of adding a melody to a plainsong and to an already existing piece of polyphonic music; (3) he shall always clothe them decently and properly, see that they wear good shoes, and ensure that their beds are kept perfectly clean; (4) he shall feed them the same food that he himself eats and never take money from them for anything having to do with their services in church or their musical instruction…” [cont’d]

ORGAN ACCOMPANIMENTSORDINARY OF THE MASS (Ordinarium Missae) • COMPLETE GREGORIAN CHANT MASSES • First 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.
