Rough PDF • Rubrics & Music, Holy Saturday (1962)
published 4 April 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

E DON’T USUALLY release “rough cut” PDF files—especially when they’re ugly cut & paste—but this one is so valuable I can’t resist. Think of this as a 61-page “cheat sheet” for the Pius XII (Revised) Easter Vigil mandatory in 1955:

    * *  PDF SOLESMES “Rubrics & Music for Holy Saturday” (1957)

As time goes on, we will release the complete Holy Saturday with organ accompaniments—along with splendidly re-typeset English interlinear translations as we’ve been doing on the Goupil Chant Website—but this will come later.

If you want a version of the Easter Vigil with fantastic typesetting & English translations, try the Campion Hymnal; but that’s a book for the congregation—not the choir.
