    I edited the title of this thread to specify "music". Some users were responding as if the questioner were looking for a PDF copy of the whole book. To avoid confusion, I have deleted those responses. --admin

    A note about the ICEL music pages: some national editions of the Missal don't use all of ICEL's music, but may make additions or substitutions. For example, the US edition gives the Our Father composed by Snow in 1964 as the first melody for that part of the Mass.

    Yes, voice lessons can benefit a lot of people.

    But how do you know that your singing voice should have a higher pitch range than it has now? Is it very different from your speaking voice?

    The music notation in the missal is a bit unfortunate: writing the melodies in modern notation on a five-line staff may give some people the impression that these particular pitches are "conventional" or "standard". It would be better to use chant notation on a four-line staff; then it would be clearer that the pitch range should be adjusted to the singers.

    I think there should be a notated version for all voice types, however with chant notation this is not an issue. I will admit that do like Do C and Fa F for the most part. Its more habit than anything and suits my particular voice. Missa de Angelis, however will always see Do as D.

    It's interesting to note in the Music for the English Language Roman Missal: An Introduction (ICEL, 2009), ICEL states:

        In the music to be provided to the Conferences of Bishops, ICEL seriously considered employing the venerable four‐line square note notation of the Latin chant books. Once one learns the medieval notation, which does not take long, it is in some ways easier to read than modern five‐line notation. But pastoral considerations argued against this approach. There is danger that the traditional four‐line notation would pose a practical hindrance and psychological barrier for some singers. The uppermost goal must be to enable sung liturgy.

        Though a standard G clef (without key signature) is used with this five‐line notation, it is not intended to suggest an absolute pitch, but rather, as in four‐line notation, relative pitch, to accommodate various ranges of voices that will be singing these chants.

    a four-line staff... would be clearer that the pitch range should be adjusted to the singers.
    This was never obvious to me, having mastered a few C clefs before coming to chant. I now transpose 5 line clefs routinely as well, but also appreciate a well considered suggestion for pitch: our congregation always starts Agnus XI in e dorian and the organ accompaniment is never practiced in any other key.
