"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

“Indeed, we may not hope for real Latin poetry any more, because Latin is now a dead language to all of us. However well a man may read, write, or even speak Latin now, it is always a foreign language to him, acquired artificially. It is no one's mother tongue. Does a man ever write real poetry in an acquired language?”
— Rev’d Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

1961 Solesmes "Graduale Romanum" Online
published 19 March 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

507 Graduale Romanum Solesmes HERE is no such thing as a “1962 Graduale Romanum.” The Rites were slightly revised in 1962 (for instance, the various classes for feasts) but Solesmes was not interested in revising their books.

Here’s a free PDF download of the entire Graduale, courtesy of the CMAA (Vatican Edition, large print):

      * *  1961 Solesmes Graduale Romanum (PDF)

Some people confuse the “Liber Usualis” and the Graduale Romanum. Basically, the “Graduale” pertains to the Mass, while the “Liber Usualis” also has chants from the Divine Office. Both contain the complete Kyriale.

Here’s a special index, giving page numbers for each INTROIT, GRADUAL, OFFERTORY, etc.

You can also download Jeff Ostrowski’s copy of the Solesmes 1961 Graduale, but his isn’t scanned as nicely as the CMAA copy above:
