The Proper of Time

The chants found below are from the first section of The Roman Missal, the Proper of Time.  Please note that these chants are provided for study purposes only, and are not authorized for liturgical use in the United States before November 27, 2011. 

Most of the chants found here are Prefaces for specific Sundays and solemnities during the seasons of the year.  The prefaces for the seasons themselves are found in the Order of Mass, just before the Eucharistic Prayers.  Other chants found in this section are for sung texts that are proper to specific days during the Christmas Season, Holy Week and the Paschal Triduum.

You will find the text and musical notation for each item in PDF format and for most items there are also MP3 recordings.  Recordings of the remaining items will be made available soon.
