The Church Music Association of America is pleased to bring you hundreds of free, high-quality editions of chant and chant instruction, with no access fees.
The latest addition to the vast collection of instruction books is An Applied Course in Gregorian Chant, by Joseph Robert Carroll from 1956. We invite you to examine this wonderful text and possibly pass it on to your singers as a very useful tool for achieving excellence in singing.
Here are more instructional guides. And here are the chant books themselves. It is the most extensive online library of its kind. Our store with physical copies for sale is also available.
The CMAA is also working to publish new editions of chant in English for use in parish life today. The campaign to fund Adam Bartlett’s Simple English Propers is right now 68% completed, after only two weeks.
If you would like to help, even with the smallest donation, you can go to the campaign site and pledge. The goal is to have these available for free as a full set in time for the new Missal translation. We also plan to have hard copies available for free. Pledge today so that we can move from 68% to 100%.
