Palmer and Burgess Exsulta Fillia
  • Does a full Gregorian (not psalm-toned) version of this communio exist in the P&B books? I can't seem to find one.
  • I'm not seeing one. Could be wrong of course. They set "in splendoribus" for Christmas Day mass.

    In this thread I've pointed out an index, still awaiting a crowd-sourced expansion. I don't think though that I've missed any Marian feasts.

    It seems to me that I've sung something different at 8:00 than at 11:00 AM: maybe I'll find something in the closet tomorrow. And today I see that I've done something on the fly: my Gregorian Missal has the first letter of most syllables pencilled in.

    looks like the entire Christmas: Mass at Dawn has been omitted from the Palmer/Burgess Plainchant Gradual.

    ...however, that solemnity is included in Paul Ford's American Gradual, so I've excerpted the chant in question and attached it here.

    FYI, the American Gradual may be freely downloaded here.
  • Those are great. However, I work at an Ordinariate parish, so the expectation is that I'll use that brand of English translations, rubrical allowances aside.

    Sounds like an opportunity for trenntonjconn to expand the available Ordinate chant repertoire.
  • Time to play with GABC.
  • Is there a freely accessible source for the Ordinariate texts available online?

    Back in 2016, I started adapting the new Ordinariate Missal, a project that didn't get far. This is what I came up with. I was working from a draft of the texts, so the attached may not be accurate. I also attach a PDF of the whole of Christmas Mass at Dawn that I came up with.
  • That appears to be the correct translation! Thank you. I'm not sure whether or not the translations are readily available online.

    Though still a work in progress, William Renwick's Sarum Missal in English has propers for the Mass at Sunrise including a sequence. Exulta filia is on page 110.
