    I was needing to download the Jubilate Deo booklet. I followed the link for the St. Cecelia Schola, but that link is no longer good. Does anyone know where I can find another resource for this?

    Thanks, Bonnie! I'm also looking for the version in chant notation.

    A copy of the booklet and of a demonstration recording sold in the 1980s is on-line at

    (sound files in FLAC format, transcribed from audio cassette, sung rather slowly)

    I'm going to suggest to the creators of the Square Note App(wonderful app!) that they add the Jubilate Deo compilation to their App (obviously pieces of it are in the Kyriale and "other chants" but not all of it and not in one handy place in the App). Because that app is increasingly being accessed by beginners from the great unwashed (like myself). To some degree, it's even advertised for "learners" and yet does not have this beginner's basic repertoire. For the same reason, I also feel it would be a great service if CC Watershed could do the same on its Kyriale page with the wonderful practice audio/videos (not that he has tons of spare time!). http://www.ccwatershed.org/kyriale/

    There are separate pieces on Youtube but not a complete compilation in one place on Youtube to my knowledge. The demonstration recording Chonak linked to is currently the best (and I believe only) "complete" practice recording out there in the digital world to my knowledge.

    Strangely enough the flac files at Chonak's link don't include Salve Regina. Well there are couple very good recordings on YouTube for that one.

    Got a positive response from Developer of Square Note on my suggestion. Here's hoping!
  • I'm not sure if this is old news to many of you, but Pilgrimage House Press has now republished the 1974 Typis Polyglottis Vaticanis Edition of Jubilate Deo. Not being a musician or having access to the original, I am not sure whether all of the chants were all set properly, but I think this is a great service to the Church on the part of the publisher. It can be found on Amazon as well as here:

    GIA seem to have a much cheaper version, at https://www.giamusic.com/store/resource/jubilate-deo-print-g1909 , which is probably also the 1974 edition judging by the description. It will certainly be a welcome development if we can get back to where we should have been 45 years ago, and then move on 'the road not taken'.

    Thanks for posting about Pilgrimage's edition of Jubilate Deo. I didn't know about it until now. It probably has better engraving than the 1970s Vatican version, but its cover price of $18.95 is just too high. In that range -- even with the current discount down to $14.21 -- Solesmes' hardcover introductory book Liber Cantualis (about $16) is a better value.

    If they were to change it from paperback to booklet format, they might be able to get the Lulu price down around $8, though the booklets would probably be less durable than the paperbacks.

    Unfortunately for people who might want to see Pilgrimage's edition before ordering a copy, their on-line sample display only shows text pages in the little book: none of the chants! They should use Lulu's option to select which pages are included in the sampler.

    I clicked on a few of the sound files that chonak shared from Gabrielmass.

    I must be living under a rock. I never realized that the melodic formula of the Easter time dismissal, "Thanks be God, Alleluia" is an all "alleluia" chant that would be wonderful to use as the Gospel Acclamation.

    Thank you, chonak, for finding and sharing the recording.

    The GIA publication is in modern notation, not chant notation.

    Thanks @bhcordova, is it the 32 items listed here? I wonder why GIA are so coy with their description.
    Joseph Michael : Curiously, that Alleluia (which I have never heard) is NOT what is shown in their copy of the booklet.

    The PDF at my gabrielmass link above has a scan of the original Vatican booklet, except that someone replaced the title page and added Voluntati Obsequens.
