• Hello all,

    Does anyone know of any initiative to re-typeset the Graduale Sarisburiense (https://ia801006.us.archive.org/6/items/ldpd_10276822_000/ldpd_10276822_000.pdf)?

    Of a truth, and yet methinks a copy and paste sufficeth.

  • No moderntrad , links can be tricksy, try here
  • I second the vote for Dr William Renwick's work. I wish I had more opportunities to incorporate Sarum chants or chant variants into the liturgy. Just look at all these Sequences!

  • That is such lovely work. I wish their setting of the propers (above) were just the music without the readings and rubrics. It would be nice to sing some of this music in place of the Gregorian melodies every once in a while to keep things lively.

    Strong gallicanist smell.

  • ummm what?
  • Um, igneus - sixth century or seventeenth century?
    St. Gregory the Great pointed out the Gallican Church to his envoy Augustine, the Apostle of England, as one of those whose customs he might accept as of equal stability with those of the Roman Church or of any other whatsoever.
    One can see that, for example, chant at Worcester is related to Rouen - in 13th century examples, not a bad thing in liturgy IMHO (not so good in politics).

    Yes, an odd comment, given the great anti-gallican, Dom Gueranger's, intense interest in non-Roman liturgical collects, hymns, antiphons, &c. as evidenced (1) by his plenteous inclusion of such elements in his L'Année Liturgique, and (2) inclusion of a number of non-Roman elements in the Processionale Monasticum.
