Welcome to the NPM Chant Section
The NPM Chant Section aspires to be a first source and link for repertoire, publications, and training opportunities to all members of the NPM seeking to understand, direct, and sing all types of chant — be it the new compositions of English chants or timeless Latin classics — in the Liturgy.
To this aim, the NPM Chant Section offers various online and offline resources and educational occasions for understanding the history and current role of chant in the liturgy, which chants to sing and when, how to sing chant, and how to make chant accessible to congregations.
The Chant Section also provides chant training and repertoire, and promotes all chant offerings at the NPM national conventions.
