*Introduction by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.*

*The Propers of the Mass* book contains English chant settings for the
Entrance and Communion Antiphons given in *The Roman Missal*, 2010, as well
as suggestions for the Offertory Antiphons, following the pattern of
the *Graduale

For most antiphons, four levels of settings from complex to very simple are
provided, : i. through-composed melismatic; ii. through-composed simple;
iii. Gregorian psalm tone; iv. English psalm tone. Optional psalm verses
are provided in the Gregorian psalm tone style. Thus this collection
provides an option intended to suit the abilities and needs of any choir or

Ordination and nuptial Masses are also included, as well as the *Asperges
me* and *Vidi aquam*. The *Gloria Patri* is given in the eight Gregorian
tones, solemn and simple.

*Praise for The Proper of the Mass for Sundays and Solemnities: *

“I highly recommend this new English Gradual to anyone who wants to sing
the proper antiphons on a regular basis and is looking for very accessible,
yet most beautiful chant in the vernacular. We cannot thank Fr. Samuel
Weber enough for all his hard work, a true labor of love and dedication to
liturgy and the Church. I am most confident that this new Gradual will
become a standard work and hopefully find a home in many parishes.”
*- Dr. Horz Buckholtz*, Director of Sacred Music Cathedral Basilica of
Saint Louis, St. Louis, MO

“Fr. Samuel Weber has performed an outstanding service to the liturgy of
the English-speaking world. He has taken the antiphons of the new English
translation of the RomanMissal and provided musical settings for them that
are accessible to both parishes and choirs of various levels. In doing so,
he has enabled the Catholic faithful to encounter the word of God in an
English context that has been inaccessible to them for far too long. The
Church has, for centuries, used these antiphons in Latin for her official
worship, and now Fr. Weber has made that possible in English as well.

Fr. Weber has made a quite remarkable contribution to the handing down of
the Tradition-in the midst of the Church-in medio ecclesiae. May this
collection serve the Church’s liturgy, her ‘source and summit’ in numerous
ways, some of which will be known only in eternity.”
