“Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays.”
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Recordings for A New Book of Old Hymns
published 20 February 2016 by Veronica Brandt

HEN IT COMES TO A HANDY BOOK of Gregorian chant hymns there is one book I keep coming back to, time and time again. I am the compiler, so I can’t be said to be a completely impartial judge, but as I have had the longest time to grow tired of it, maybe that means something when I still recommend it after a decade or more.

As a reply to those who have requested recordings over the years, I offer this tour of such a collection.


Feel free to browse the curated collection of recordings of the music.

At the moment you can even download the whole book here.

I have just updated the files at Lulu and Amazon, keeping page numbers the same, but making minor improvements.
