Resources for singing the New Roman Missal translation

Here is a list (not quite definitive) of everything you need, to sing the New Roman Missal Translation that is available on the internet (and virtually all of it is free to download.)

Firstly if you are in the Diocese of  Arundel and Brighton  there are  various introductory evenings being held on the new music. I am going to the session on 18th October at Preston Park:

And on the internet:

The Bishop’s of England and Wales have launched a website on the New Translation. The music section if HERE

All the music in modern notation can be found on the ICEL WEBSITE

A PDF of all the music in square notation can be downloaded HERE

There are downloadable booklets and  modern notation downloads for the all the sung parts of the Mass at  THE LITURGY OFFICE

Videos of all the Mass parts are found on THE CHANT CAFE

Organ accompaniments for the Mass parts are available from the Diocese of Leeds HERE

They do ask that  if you wish to make use of it you consider making a charitable donation by cheque payable to “Leeds Cathedral Choir School”. Donations should be sent to the Music Department, Leeds Cathedral, Great George Street, Leeds LS2 8BE.

Information on  new Mass Ordinaries, more useful booklets are at MUSICA SACRA

The Preface      

All the prefaces are notated on the ICEL WEBSITE.

There are recordings of all the prefaces on THE MUSIC MAKERS SITE.  Just click on the prefaces download in the side bar.


Mysterium Fidei (Mystery of Faith)

There are downloadable MP3s of some of the Priests Propers of Time at THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PASTORAL MUSICIANS.

It is particularly good for the Triduum.


And if you want a new Missal, my recommendation would be the CTS Missal, based on the fact that it has parallel Latin and English texts.
