WITH THE RYTHMIC SIGNS OF SOLESMES. The notes and groups of notes ( neums) used in Gregorian chant appear on a five line staff in modern notation. For those desirous of chant in modern rather than Gregorian notation, someone has kindly made the Liber Usualis in modern notation available. Anyone know of a copy of the Liber Usualis from with modern notation?.

Liber Usualis Modern Notation in English

So, without further ado, a snippet nitation the Introit of Advent The Anglican Use Gradual: While it retains the use of square-notation, it is in nootation Rite I English. Its base material is drawn from the current Graduale Romanum so it follows the same basic kalendar as the RCL. It also sometimes includes chants that match with the three-year lectionary but this seems rather infrequent and haphazard.

Overall, this work is very usualus produced with all of the seasons, commons, propers for major saints, and votives included masses for the departed that one would need. A clear index wraps everything up. It is copyrighted, but allows photocopying for the personal use of local churches and individuals provided they give correct attribution. These appear to have both psalm tone and other settings in English with modern notation and organ accompaniment. Some of the PDFs contain handwritten scores.


This site also contains some Office materials—proper Vespers settings. These may be in square notation.

The one I looked at was. So far it only offers Advent, Christmas and Lent, but promises that more settings will become available as the seasons progress. These resources are collected here.

Thanks so much for promoting the Gregorian group on Yahoo. I administer the group and welcome anyone who wants to join. Anyone with questions is free to contact me at scottknitter gmail.

Come join the conversation! Definitely unite them into a document! If I can help with that in any capacity drop me a line. If I may open up a brief tangent, is there any chance that you might put the full set of OJN Office Hymns in your iPublications sometime in the future?

That would be a much appreciated resource. You do know, by the way, that Derek has scanned my Advent-Lent hymns? Did you know that Gregorian chants are intellectual puzzles?


I would very much like to have the entire Anglican Use Gradual in modern notation, with Rite One text. This would save a tremendous amount of time in choir rehearsal! Thanks for posting this for us.

Yes, I would like to have them. If you have an interest in the composition process used in creating Gregorian chant you may down load the first lesson from my website: My new website, Gregorian chant laws, shows how four chants apply matrics design, Christ identification, Trinity motives, and fourfold method to reveal chant as intellectual puzzles contradicting the notion that chants are simple melodies and that the music derives from the text.

This is lesson 1 in the reconstruction of the methods libfr which chant was composed.

Skip to content December 31, About Me Inwardly Digest Now! Bede Productions WP Breviary. No problem, Scott—thanks for the work you do to keep it all going! Should I bother to unite them in one document?

Anyone care enough to have them? If anyone is interested in these drop me an e-mail at johnjulianojn at sbcglobal dot net.
