Why Propers
Tis book provides music for the propers of the mass, which are
integral to the structure of the liturgy and which have been sung
since the earliest centuries. Te entrance, ofertory, and communion
chants in this book are for use in the ordinary form of the roman
rite. Te translations of the antiphons found in this collection are
from the gregorian missal as published by Solesmes, and the psalms
verses are taken from the revised grail psalter. You can fnd these
texts in latin in their gregorian musical setting in the Graduale
Romanum.
how important are the propers in the ordinary form of the liturgy?
in 1969, the Vatican’s Consilium that released the new mass in the
ordinary form was asked a question about the old prohibition of
singing of propers at low masses with hymns: Te unambiguous
answer came back: “Tat rule has been superseded. What must
be sung is the mass, its ordinary and proper, not ‘something’, no
matter how consistent, that is imposed on the mass … To continue
to replace the texts of the mass … is to cheat the people.”
Tis is why the general instruction on the roman missal (girm)
speaks of adding decorum to the processions (entrance, ofertory,
and communion) by singing the “chants proper to them” (44). “Afer
the people have gathered, the entrance chant begins” (47).“Te
procession bringing the gifs is accompanied by the ofertory
chant, which continues at least until the gifs have been placed on
the altar” (74).“While the priest is receiving the Sacrament, the
Communion chant is begun” (87).
if we are to grant chant pride of place at mass (41), the propers
of the mass clearly need greater attention. As Cardinal ratzinger
wrote in Te Spirit of Liturgy, “the biblical and liturgical texts are
vi
the normative words from which liturgical music has to take its
bearings.” however, despite the frequent mention of mass propers
in many documents, there has been a surprising dearth of resources
available to sing the propers in english, which is a step toward
singing the mass instead of just singing at mass.
Te Simple English Propers provides music for the full liturgical
action of these processions for singers who have not previously sung
mass propers. Tey are designed to be used without accompaniment.
Tey are fexible enough to be sung by a cantor alone or by a large
choir that can sing in unison in two octaves or be divided into high
voices and low voices. Te people are free to join in but this is not
necessary, for the propers of the mass belong primarily to the choir.
Te Structure
Te singing structure is as follows. Begin with the antiphon (that’s
the opening text and melody). A cantor intones the antiphon up to
the asterisk (*) and then the rest of the choir or section continues.
Antiphons without an asterisk are intended to be sung by a cantor
alone the frst time with the choir repeating the entire antiphon
thereafer. if desired, antiphons with asterisks can also be sung in
full by a cantor with the choir or section then repeating the entire
antiphon. Ten the frst psalm verse is sung, which is followed by
a repetition of the antiphon by the choir or section. Continue this
alternation between the antiphon and psalm as needed to cover the
liturgical action, and end with the antiphon. Te “glory be” on the
entrance and communion, which may be sung as the fnal verse, is
traditional but optional.
How to Sing the sep
To best way to begin singing the Single English Propers is to frst
speak the text by itself. Chant is a solemn proclamation of a
vii
liturgical text frst, ennobled by song. But if the text is unclear or
proclaimed in an overly afected way, it can become imbalanced
and its presentation will elude its purpose. As the singers speak
the text, they should be conscious of the words and syllables that
receive emphasis. Te same words and syllables should receive
emphasis when sung. remember that not all words and syllables
are emphasized in speech and the same is true in chant. each phrase
should begin with a slight acceleration and crescendo and end with
a natural relaxation and ritard, just as in speech.
Te melodies in the Simple English Propers employ the gregorian
modes (modes are the medieval way of organizing scales). Tere are
eight diferent modes in gregorian chant. each one has a special
sound and mood. Te sep preserves the mode in which the latin
chants of the Graduale Romanum are composed. Te antiphons in
this collection have been based upon a total of 24 melodic formulas,
or melodic models. Tere is a diferent formula for each mode in each
type of chant, whether entrance, ofertory, or communion. Tese
formulas are specially adapted to the needs of each antiphon. no
one melody is exactly the same, but afer learning a few antiphons in
the same formula, you will begin learning similar ones quickly and
intuitively.
modes sound diferent from modern scales. Tey are more nuanced,
gradated, and interesting than our modern sense of major and
minor. To understand the melody, look at the clef on the lef side
of each barline. Te clef is the compass that allows you to know
where the half steps and whole steps fall and, from there, to sing
the melody. For this reason, the clef should be kept constantly in
mind as you are singing. it is all you need to know the pitches of
the melody.
Tere are two types of clefs: the C clef (or Do clef ) and the F clef
(or Fa clef ). Te C clef looks like a C and “clamps” the note for C
or Do on the staf. Te F clef is the other one that seems to have a
viii
note in front of it (it looks something like a stylized F) and it marks
the pitch F or Fa.
Just as with the C and F on the keys of a piano or in any scale, the
distance of a half step separates that note marked by the clef from
the space below (which is a B or an e, depending on the clef ). Te
remainder of the scale follows from here just as on the piano. Tis
can be easily played on the white keys of the piano. or it can be
sounded out using Do Re Mi syllables (most people know Do Re Mi
from the movie “Te Sound of music”).
Te beauty of the four-line staf (instead of the modern fve line
staf) is that it presents all you need for singing (the fve-line staf is
only essential for instruments). in addition, the Do doesn’t have to
be fxed on C. it can be any pitch you choose, provided you preserve
the relationships between the notes that follow. Tis allows for total
fexibility, in efect permitting any chant to start on any pitch.
most chants in this volume use a scale that falls mostly below the
clef. Tis allows you to fnd the scale and the starting pitch by frst
sounding a Do or Fa and moving downward: Do – Ti – La – Sol –
Fa, or Fa – Mi – Re – Do. if you are looking for a quick mental recall,
think of “Joy to the World.” Tis tune begins with this descending
scale exactly. Tis one simple step will orient you in where the half
steps and whole steps are. (Tere is only one accidental in chant: the
Bb or the Te.)
Te notes and groups of notes (“neumes”) used in this book are few.
Te single square note (“punctum”) applies to word syllables and
follow the pattern of speech. Tere are also groups of two diferent
punctum

podatus (pes)
three notes sung consecutively
torculus
higher note sung first
clivis
three notes, the first two at either end of the diagonal
porrectus
Do-clef

Fa-clef
marks Fa on the staff
a single note
ix
notes stacked on one syllable (“podatus”). Te lower note is sung
frst. if the notes go from higher to lower on a single syllable, they
can be written as a “clivis.” Tere are also groups of three moving
notes on one syllable (“torculus” and “porrectus”). Te melodic
shape of these notes follows the rising and falling direction of the
notes (the “porrectus” is not slurred, despite its appearance).

a single note
notes with a line over them (“episema”) receive a slight lengthening,
and the dotted notes that occur at the ends of phrases are held
slightly longer in order to help bring them to a natural conclusion.
Tere are fve division markers that are used in chant notation and
in the sep. Tese look something like bar lines in modern music, but
they serve a very diferent purpose. Teir purpose is to help break
up the text according to its grammatical structure and to provide
breaks or pauses in the melody, just as it would be spoken.
Te largest division mark is the double bar ( ) which is found only
at the end of an antiphon or at a conclusive division of a chant. Te
x
double bar indicates a complete stop in the music. if verses are sung
afer the double bar, a pause of a few seconds should be observed
before proceeding on. Te second division is the whole bar ( ) which
marks the end of complete phrases in a chant. Te whole bar usually
coincides with a period in the text, and a substantial rhetorical
pause should be observed, just as in speech. Te third division is the
half bar ( ) which breaks the text of a chant at intermediate pauses.
Te pause at the half bar is brief and shorter than a whole bar, and
a breath should always be taken. Te fourth division is the quarter
bar ( ) which is the equivalent of a musical comma. Te quarter bar
divides “sense units” in the text. Sometimes a breath is needed and
sometimes not. A very brief pause should be taken at the quarter
bar and the musical line should not be interrupted but carry on in
a fowing manner. Te fnal division is called the articulation mark
( ) which is properly not really a division mark at all, but indicates
a need for a very slight break in the sound; a “sliver of daylight”. Te
articulation mark is not a breath mark, despite its appearance,
and a breath should never be taken for it. All that is needed is a
very quick and delicate break in the music, as we ofen break in a
similar way in speech. if the articulation mark presents problems
for beginning singers or choirs it may be better ignored.
How to Sing the Psalm Verses
Te psalm tones are based on gregorian tones and are crafed to
work seamlessly with the english language. Te psalm tones are
found at the end of each antiphon. Te psalm text is “pointed” to
permit the easy application of the tone.
Te psalm tones consist of two musical lines, which are separated
by a barline. Te frst part of the tone is sung to the frst line of a
psalm verse, which concludes with an asterisk. Te second part of
the tone is sung to the text that follows the asterisk. Afer both parts
of the tone are sung the tone is repeated in this fashion as needed.
xi
Te beginning of a verse is sung on the white note, called the reciting
tone. Te italicized words or syllables at the end of a line of text
coincide with the changing notes at the end of the tone, called the
termination. Te bold word or syllable indicates the fnal note of
the line. if there are syllables that follow this fnal note, they are
sung on this fnal pitch. (Te exception is the introit mode 1 tone,
where the fnal syllable is sung on a descending 3-note fgure which
is broken up if any syllables follow the bold syllable.) When there
are three lines of text, you will see the mark for the “fex” (†). here
the singer should not sing the termination, but just pause briefy on
the reciting tone and then continue singing.
Te chanting of the psalms is a simple but delicate art. Te text is
sung lightly, in the manner of good speech, with a slight emphasis
on word accents, just as you would speak them. At the beginning
of a line you should sing with a slight acceleration, and at the end
of the tone the singing should relax and coast naturally to a rest. At
the asterisk (*) there should be a short pause of one to two seconds.
Tis keeps the psalm from being rushed, adds a moment of repose
and refection, and adds much beauty to the singing of the psalms.
Conclusion
if you are discouraged at frst, stay at it. You will learn quickly. Te
more you sing, the more expressive and driven your chant will
become. each chant will begin to take on its own personality over
time. As a fnal reminder, never forget the purpose to chant: to
proclaim the liturgical text with beauty and nobility.
Te Simple English Propers was composed and edited by Adam
Bartlett under the guidance of Fr. Columba Kelly, osb as well as
the guidance of many in the sacred-music community, and was
engraved by Steven van roode. it benefted from comments by
hundreds of dedicated people at the ChantCafe.com and the forum
xii
at musicaSacra.com, where this book was posted week by week in
2010 in a beta test that went live in parishes around the english-
speaking world. Te editions of music improved due to this “crowd
sourcing” technique, and this led to a unique and tremendously
successful experiment: the funding too was crowd sourced. Te
publishers are grateful to the many benefactors who contributed to
make this edition possible.

An efort such as this one could not have come into being without
the cooperation and collaboration of a diverse range of people and
events. Tanksgiving and glory are ultimately due to god alone,
without whom this book would be an exercise in futility. But by the
grace of god and under the guidance of the holy Spirit the need
for this collection was discerned and through the combined eforts
of a dedicated group of people it was created.
i would like to thank our holy Father pope Benedict xvi for his
vision for the renewal of the sacred liturgy, and of sacred music.
it is his admonition that an authentic updating of sacred music is
indeed needed in our time—one that grows organically out of the
the great tradition of the past—that is compelling young composers
to take up the task of adding to the Church’s treasure stores.
i would like to thank the faithful bishops, church leaders, priests and
religious who are leading the new liturgical movement in our day,
and who are tilling the soil for a deeply rooted renewal of the liturgy
and of sacred music, especially Bishop Tomas J. olmsted who has
patiently shepherded his fock, of which i am a part, toward a more
sacred and solemn celebration of the liturgy. And also Bishop Wall,
msgr. moroney, msgr. Wadsworth, Fr. Kline, Fr. muir, Fr. Floridi,
Fr. lankeit, Fr. Chirovsky, Fr. Jalbert, Fr. o’Connor, Fr. henry,
Fr. Schmid, Fr. Bolding, Fr. ramirez, the phoenix poor Claires,
the Sisters of mary mother of the eucharist, and the Sisters of St.
Cecelia, who have all been an inspiration and a support.
i thank in a special way Fr. Columba Kelly to whom i am indebted
for anything that is of value in this book, who has been a mentor, a
guide, and an indispensable source of knowledge and wisdom for me
in my pursuit of the art of gregorian chant. And also to Fr. Samuel
xiv
Weber for the use of his simple psalm tones in this collection. And
to the monks of St. meinrad Archabbey who have kept alive for
many decades the liturgical chant tradition for future generations
to experience and learn from.
i would like to thank the faculty and students of the liturgical
institute of St. mary of the lake University, especially Fr. Douglas
martis and Dr. Denis mcnamara, for their tireless work in the
promotion of the liturgical apostolate and for their insights into
authentic liturgical renewal.
Special thanks are due to the Church music Association of
America, and especially to Jefrey Tucker, in collaboration with
whom this project was conceived. Jefrey has been a most patient
and forward-thinking publisher, a close collaborator and a very
good friend through the preparation of this collection. All of the
readers of the Chant Café and the participants in the musica Sacra
Forum have ofered indispensable feedback and criticism that has
made this book what it is, and truly have made it possible. Tank
you to Aristotle esguerra, Jefrey ostrowski, Jefrey morse, Charles
Culbreth, Arlene oost-Zinner, William mahrt, richard Chonak,
Christopher Berardi, noel Jones and the many others who have
given invaluable feedback and encouragement throughout.
A very special thanks to prof. lászló Dobszay for his proposal of
a formulaic method of singing the propers of the mass in a simple
style. And for his generous sharing of his wisdom and insights
surrounding the problem.
Tank you to Steven van roode, chant engraver par excellance, who
has been a trusted collaborative companion over the many months
that this manuscript was being prepared. And to Denys powlett-
Jones who contributed several needed translations for this book.
And thanks to all of the volunteers who assisted in the compiling
of the source texts and data for this book, and who reported errors
xv
and provided feedback through the beta process, especially erik
pafet, David Deavy, Justin Adams, greg plese, Andrew hinkley,
ernesto gonzalez, and Chris Sarti. Tank you to the development
community of the gregorio chant engraving sofware, especially elie
roux and Tracy llenos, who have developed the most outstanding
chant engraving sofware available.
Tank you to the choirs and schola cantorum of St. Joan of Arc
parish who have been the most willing guinea pigs and who have
faithfully embraced the chant tradition and the liturgical singing of
the propers of the mass.
A special thank you to the sixty-four benefactors who funded this
project during an online campaign of fourteen short days. Your
willing patronage has made it possible to keep this book free of
copyright restriction so that all will be able to use and share it freely.
Tank you to my wonderful wife for her patience throughout
this process, and for her support and motherly care of our family.
And to all family and friends who have been a constant source of
encouragement and support, and to all who i have forgotten to
mention, particularly those have supported this project in prayer.
lastly, i thank the parish musicians throughout the english
speaking world who are working to renew the sacred music tradition
in practice, especially those who have supported and followed this
project with interest. it is to you whom this book is dedicated, and
for you that it was created. may your singing of the propers of the
mass give glory unto god and enrich and sanctify the faithful who
you serve.

Why Propers This book provides music for the propers of the mass, which are integral to the structure of the liturgy and which have been sung since the earliest centuries. The entrance, offertory, and communion chants in this book are for use in the ordinary form of the roman rite. The translations of the antiphons found in this collection are from the gregorian missal as published by Solesmes, and the psalms verses are taken from the revised grail psalter. You can find these texts in latin in their gregorian musical setting in the Graduale Romanum. how important are the propers in the ordinary form of the liturgy? in 1969, the Vatican’s Consilium that released the new mass in the ordinary form was asked a question about the old prohibition of singing of propers at low masses with hymns: The unambiguous answer came back: “That rule has been superseded. What must be sung is the mass, its ordinary and proper, not ‘something’, no matter how consistent, that is imposed on the mass … To continue to replace the texts of the mass … is to cheat the people.” This is why the general instruction on the roman missal (girm) speaks of adding decorum to the processions (entrance, offertory, and communion) by singing the “chants proper to them” (44). “After the people have gathered, the entrance chant begins” (47).“ The procession bringing the gifts is accompanied by the offertory chant, which continues at least until the gifts have been placed on the altar” (74).“ While the priest is receiving the Sacrament, the Communion chant is begun” (87). if we are to grant chant pride of place at mass (41), the propers of the mass clearly need greater attention. As Cardinal ratzinger wrote in The Spirit of Liturgy, “the biblical and liturgical texts are

the normative words from which liturgical music has to take its bearings.” however, despite the frequent mention of mass propers in many documents, there has been a surprising dearth of resources available to sing the propers in english, which is a step toward singing the mass instead of just singing at mass. The Simple English Propers provides music for the full liturgical action of these processions for singers who have not previously sung mass propers. They are designed to be used without accompaniment. They are flexible enough to be sung by a cantor alone or by a large choir that can sing in unison in two octaves or be divided into high voices and low voices. The people are free to join in but this is not necessary, for the propers of the mass belong primarily to the choir. The Structure The singing structure is as follows. Begin with the antiphon (that’s the opening text and melody). A cantor intones the antiphon up to the asterisk (*) and then the rest of the choir or section continues. Antiphons without an asterisk are intended to be sung by a cantor alone the first time with the choir repeating the entire antiphon thereafter. if desired, antiphons with asterisks can also be sung in full by a cantor with the choir or section then repeating the entire antiphon. Then the first psalm verse is sung, which is followed by a repetition of the antiphon by the choir or section. Continue this alternation between the antiphon and psalm as needed to cover the liturgical action, and end with the antiphon. The “glory be” on the entrance and communion, which may be sung as the final verse, is traditional but optional. How to Sing the sep To best way to begin singing the Single English Propers is to first speak the text by itself. Chant is a solemn proclamation of a

liturgical text first, ennobled by song. But if the text is unclear or proclaimed in an overly affected way, it can become imbalanced and its presentation will elude its purpose. As the singers speak the text, they should be conscious of the words and syllables that receive emphasis. The same words and syllables should receive emphasis when sung. remember that not all words and syllables are emphasized in speech and the same is true in chant. each phrase should begin with a slight acceleration and crescendo and end with a natural relaxation and ritard, just as in speech. The melodies in the Simple English Propers employ the gregorian modes (modes are the medieval way of organizing scales). There are eight different modes in gregorian chant. each one has a special sound and mood. The sep preserves the mode in which the latin chants of the Graduale Romanum are composed. The antiphons in this collection have been based upon a total of 24 melodic formulas, or melodic models. There is a different formula for each mode in each type of chant, whether entrance, offertory, or communion. These formulas are specially adapted to the needs of each antiphon. no one melody is exactly the same, but after learning a few antiphons in the same formula, you will begin learning similar ones quickly and intuitively. modes sound different from modern scales. They are more nuanced, gradated, and interesting than our modern sense of major and minor. To understand the melody, look at the clef on the left side of each barline. The clef is the compass that allows you to know where the half steps and whole steps fall and, from there, to sing the melody. For this reason, the clef should be kept constantly in mind as you are singing. it is all you need to know the pitches of the melody. There are two types of clefs: the C clef (or Do clef ) and the F clef (or Fa clef ). The C clef looks like a C and “clamps” the note for C or Do on the staff. The F clef is the other one that seems to have a

note in front of it (it looks something like a stylized F) and it marks the pitch F or Fa. Do-clef marks Do on the staff Fa-clef marks Fa on the staff

punctum Just as with the C and F on the keys of a piano or in any scale, the distance of a half step separates that note marked by the clef from a single note the space below (which is a B or an e, depending on the clef ). The podatus follows remainder of the scale (pes) from here just as on the piano. This can be easily bottomon the white keys of the piano. or it can be played note sung first sounded out using Do Re Mi syllables (most people know Do Re Mi torculus from the movie “The Sound of music”). three notes sung consecutively The beauty of the four-line staff (instead of the modern five line clivis staff ) is that it presents all you need for singing (the five-line staff is only essentialhigher note sung firstaddition, the Do doesn’t have to for instruments). in be fixed on C. it can be any pitch you choose, provided you preserve the relationships between the notes that follow. This allows for total porrectus flexibility, in effect permittingfirst two at to startend any pitch. three notes, the any chant either on of the diagonal most chants in this volume use a scale that falls mostly below the clef. This allows you to find the scale and the starting pitch by first sounding a Do or Fa and moving downward: Do – Ti – La – Sol – Fa, or Fa – Mi – Re – Do. if you are looking for a quick mental recall, think of “Joy to the World.” This tune begins with this descending scale exactly. This one simple step will orient you in where the half steps and whole steps are. (There is only one accidental in chant: the Bb or the Te.) The notes and groups of notes (“neumes”) used in this book are few. The single square note (“punctum”) applies to word syllables and follow the pattern of speech. There are also groups of two different

” There are also groups of three moving notes on one syllable (“torculus” and “porrectus”).ix notes stacked on one syllable (“podatus”). There are five division markers that are used in chant notation and in the sep. if the notes go from higher to lower on a single syllable. and the dotted notes that occur at the ends of phrases are held slightly longer in order to help bring them to a natural conclusion. The . just as it would be spoken. the first two at either end of the diagonal notes with a line over them (“episema”) receive a slight lengthening. despite its appearance). staff marks Fa on the notes (the “porrectus”the staff punctum a single note podatus (pes) bottom note sung first torculus three notes sung consecutively clivis higher note sung first porrectus three notes. but they serve a very different purpose. These look something like bar lines in modern music. The lower note is sung first. Their purpose is to help break up the text according to its grammatical structure and to provide breaks or pauses in the melody. The largest division mark is the double bar ( ) which is found only at the end of an antiphon or at a conclusive division of a chant. they can be written as a “clivis. The melodic Fa-clef shape ofDo-clef these notes follows the rising and falling direction of the marks Do on is not slurred.

and a breath should never be taken for it. The final division is called the articulation mark ( ) which is properly not really a division mark at all. Sometimes a breath is needed and sometimes not. How to Sing the Psalm Verses The psalm tones are based on gregorian tones and are crafted to work seamlessly with the english language.x double bar indicates a complete stop in the music. The articulation mark is not a breath mark. The psalm tones are found at the end of each antiphon. A very brief pause should be taken at the quarter bar and the musical line should not be interrupted but carry on in a flowing manner. . The second part of the tone is sung to the text that follows the asterisk. which are separated by a barline. The psalm text is “pointed” to permit the easy application of the tone. but indicates a need for a very slight break in the sound. The fourth division is the quarter bar ( ) which is the equivalent of a musical comma. which concludes with an asterisk. despite its appearance. The psalm tones consist of two musical lines. The quarter bar divides “sense units” in the text. and a breath should always be taken. The third division is the half bar ( ) which breaks the text of a chant at intermediate pauses. The pause at the half bar is brief and shorter than a whole bar. The second division is the whole bar ( ) which marks the end of complete phrases in a chant. All that is needed is a very quick and delicate break in the music. if verses are sung after the double bar. The first part of the tone is sung to the first line of a psalm verse. a pause of a few seconds should be observed before proceeding on. just as in speech. if the articulation mark presents problems for beginning singers or choirs it may be better ignored. as we often break in a similar way in speech. and a substantial rhetorical pause should be observed. After both parts of the tone are sung the tone is repeated in this fashion as needed. The whole bar usually coincides with a period in the text. a “sliver of daylight”.

Conclusion if you are discouraged at first. they are sung on this final pitch. just as you would speak them. called the reciting tone. At the beginning of a line you should sing with a slight acceleration. The more you sing. but just pause briefly on the reciting tone and then continue singing. As a final reminder. and adds much beauty to the singing of the psalms. This keeps the psalm from being rushed. osb as well as the guidance of many in the sacred-music community. each chant will begin to take on its own personality over time.) When there are three lines of text. never forget the purpose to chant: to proclaim the liturgical text with beauty and nobility. where the final syllable is sung on a descending 3-note figure which is broken up if any syllables follow the bold syllable. if there are syllables that follow this final note. called the termination. the more expressive and driven your chant will become. The italicized words or syllables at the end of a line of text coincide with the changing notes at the end of the tone. The Simple English Propers was composed and edited by Adam Bartlett under the guidance of Fr. Columba Kelly. here the singer should not sing the termination. with a slight emphasis on word accents. and at the end of the tone the singing should relax and coast naturally to a rest. The text is sung lightly. and was engraved by Steven van roode. The chanting of the psalms is a simple but delicate art. you will see the mark for the “flex” (†).
