Product Description

The Lumen Christi Simple Gradual is the perfect starting point for parishes to begin singing the Mass. Available in both Assembly and Choir editions, it will quickly become a lasting addition to your parish’s repertoire and will help you sing the Mass, not just sing at Mass.

The Assembly Edition is an abridged version of the Lumen Christi Missalcontaining only the “Simple Gradual”, Order of Mass and Ordinary sections. It is a perfect companion to the Lumen Christi Hymnalthough it may be easily paired with any hymnal or even be used entirely on its own—providing a comprehensive, yet entry-level repertoire of liturgical chant for parishes to sing during the Entrance, Offertory and Communion processions.

The Choir Edition contains fully pointed Psalm verses for every antiphon. It can be used in conjunction with the Assembly Edition or with the Lumen Christi Missal. The chant settings are simple enough to be sung by anyone, but are challenging enough to sustain musical interest and enthusiastic singing over time.

Content Overview

  • Over 300 simple chant settings of proper antiphons for the Entrance, Offertory and Communion processions that can be sung by the liturgical assembly, covering the Proper of Time, Holy Week, Major Feasts, Commons, Ritual Masses, Votive Masses, and the Mass for the Dead
  • Choir Edition contains fully pointed Psalm verses for every antiphon
  • The Order of Mass according to the new translation of the Roman Missal with people’s parts notated to be sung
  • Eighteen Mass Settings, including the ICEL chant setting, three newly composed simple English chant settings, the full Kyriale Simplex, and nine of the simplest and most commonly sung Gregorian Ordinaries
