English and Spanish Pew Missal

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the English and Spanish Pew Missal by Ignatius Press, now is the time! Ignatius Press and Fr. Samuel Weber, O.S.B. collaborated to produce a yearly missal in English and Spanish to not only include the Sunday lectionary and hymns section, but also simple chants for the Propers of the Mass. I personally use the English missal where I serve at the St. Pius X Catholic Student Center at Pittsburg State University (which is in Kansas in case you’re wondering). My musicians use the Entrance and Communion Propers along with the verses from cantor book for the Pew Missal. As Fr. Samuel explained to our classes in seminary, the simple tones of the Propers are the building blocks of learning more through-composed and melismatic chant. Unfortunately, our musical education has collectively forgotten the simple tones, but the Pew Missal is a great way to start learning the place of the Propers again. Thank you to Ignatius Press and Fr. Samuel for publishing this great project!

One thought on “English and Spanish Pew Missal

  1. Fr. Weber, I’ve been using your Ash Wednesday chants for many years…since I found them. They are by far the most hauntingly beautiful and bring the solemnity to our sacred liturgies.I’ve also used many other things you have created. I, for one, am so grateful for all you’ve done to bring beauty back to our liturgies in our music. I am anxiously awaiting the Spanish resource since there are so few resources out there to bring those liturgies in line with what our parish is presently doing. Can you tell me when you expect Canta la Misa to be available? many many thanks. And may our Blessed Mother continue to cover you in her mantle as you work for her Son.
