ATERSHED has initiated a series of interviews we will be posting online to raise awareness of the Mass Propers. The first interview was was with Fr. Christopher Mann. Here’s what CCW President, Jeff Ostrowski, said about the interview:
“The audio quality wasn’t very good, but we’ve already figured out ways to make the next interview higher quality. Overall, I think the interview was pretty good, especially for it being our very first one. I’m glad Fr. Mann has agreed to come back on the program after we’ve had time to ‘mature,’ so to speak, in our interview techniques.”
THOSE DESIRING A BOOK with the complete Mass Propers in English ought to investigate the Lalemant Propers. Beautifully-bound and painstakingly-typeset, this 391-page book contains very simple Psalm Tone settings of the complete Roman Gradual as well as forty-five fully pointed Psalms. The Propers are notated note-by-note, making it possible for those without any musical training to instantly sing them. The entire collection can be downloaded here:
