“We must say it plainly: the Roman rite as we knew it exists no more. It has gone. Some walls of the structure have fallen, others have been altered—we can look at it as a ruin or as the partial foundation of a new building. Think back, if you remember it, to the Latin sung High Mass with Gregorian chant. Compare it with the modern post-Vatican II Mass. It is not only the words, but also the tunes and even certain actions that are different. In fact it is a different liturgy of the Mass.”
— Fr. Joseph Gelineau (1978)

Color by "Neum"ber
published 22 February 2014 by Veronica Brandt

Color by "Neum"ber ERE IS A FANTASTIC RESOURCE – a chant workbook for kids, shared via the Musica Sacra Forum. Twelve pages with copious illustrations, ready to support a lesson on pitch, rhythm and the basic chants for the Mass from Pope Paul VI’s little booklet Jubilate Deo. There are pictures to colour, words to trace and just a little bit of the story of why we sing Gregorian chant.

This children’s book was a follow up to another workbook Carl Neimeyer shared for an introductory workshop in Gregorian chant. 16 pages of handsome, simple info on Gregorian chant, reminiscent of A Gregorian Chant Masterclass by Dr. Marier.

So head over to the Musica Sacra Forum and have a look.
