    I’m stuck... Where would I find the Latin chants and texts for the entrance, offertory and communion from a Ritual Mass for the Ordination of Deacons?

    I’ve got everything in English, but this upcoming ordination they have requested all the proper chants to be sung in Latin. (Praise God! Such exciting direction from the upcoming priests!)

    Thanks you for your help.

    Graduale Romanum. Look for the section Missae Rituales: In Conferendis Sacris Ordinibus. There are numerous options. (p. 644 in my copy.)
  • I stand corrected. Out of curiosity, I searched and found that apparently there have been changes since 1974. Who knew? (Not me...until now.)

    The above link has been very helpful, but it doesn't have the Latin Communion antiphon text or music.
    "Euntes in mundum..." There is a similar one, but it talks about going forth and baptizing, while the chant proper to the diaconate ordination talks about spreading the gospel.

    This is an example of the Missal (or in this case: the Ritual) providing a text that doesn't exist in the corpus of Gregorian chant. Just go with Euntes ... docete omnes.
