Proper of Saints

The chants listed below for the Proper of Saints are found a bit more than halfway through The Roman Missal.  Please note that these chants are provided for study purposes only, and are not authorized for liturgical use in the United States before November 27, 2011. 

All of the prefaces listed here are for specific solemnities and feasts.  The prefaces for the commons are found in the Order of Mass.  The only other chants in this section are for the entrance rites on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (February 2).

You will find the text and musical notation for each item in PDF format and for most items there are also MP3 recordings.  Recordings of the remaining items will be made available soon.
