The Lumen Christi Gradual is a comprehensive English gradual for Sundays and Major Feasts. It is the Cantor/Choir complement to the Lumen Christi Missal, and is the definitive parish resource for fully sung liturgy in English, providing chant settings that are simple, accessible, flexible, and enduring.
Edited by Adam Bartlett, it is the successor to Simple English Propers (CMAA, 2011), and fully employs the English translations of the 3rd edition of the Roman Missal.
It fully contains all of the antiphons of the Lumen Christi Missal for Sundays and Major Feasts, Commons, Votive Masses, Ritual Masses and Masses for the Dead, but expands upon these, also including full English chant settings of the antiphons that are found in the Lumen Christi Missal in text only, and more.
The arrangement of this volume allows for the the singing of the entire Proper of the Mass in its full textual integrity, along with pointed Psalm verses, while simultaneously containing the condensed repertoire of the Lumen Christi Simple Gradual which may be sung as congregational refrains before or after the singing of the proper antiphon by the cantor, choir or schola.
The Lumen Christi Gradual is the complete solution for the choir or schola cantorum for fully sung liturgy in English – all in a single, beautiful, durable, and affordable volume.
