ATERSHED CONTINUES in this sixth installment of the Lalemant Conversations, a series designed to bring about a greater awareness of the Mass Propers. Dr. Scott Smith speaks about many subjects, including his own conversion, the Integrated Humanities Program, the use of syncopation for Sacred music, and ragtime musical festivals.
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:
