COURSE OVERVIEW

Not required, but Minimum Repertoire of Plain Chant done gently sets the stage for Latin beautifully.  Nineteen Latin chants.  Memorize three to five of these prayers per year.

COURSE NOTES

Minimum Repertoire of Plain Chant songbook and CD set, counting as “Languages/Latin.”  For one quarter of each year, for several years, spend time as a family learning three or four of these chants, introducing Latin, Latin chant, the Saints, Church history, and the Mass all at one time.  We use this program to introduce Latin through Grade 5 or 6.
       In 1974, the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship established the minimum repertoire of sacred chant that all faithful Catholics should know--and it’s all here.  These are the songs that the old folk sing at the end of Mass that the rest of us just fake it to.  This songbook offers not only modern musical notation, Latin words, English pronunciations, and beautiful, poetic English translations, but also brief historical sketches of the origin, authorship, and history of each piece.  So…your family will not only be able to competently and confidently sing along at the end of Mass, but will be able to lecture on the chants and hymns, too!
       Kyrie, Gloria, Alleluia, Credo, Sanctus, Mysterium Fidei, Pater Noster, Agnus Dei, Te Deum, Ubi Caritas, Veni Creator, Adoro Te, Tantum Ergo, O Salutaris, Regina Caeli, Salve Regina, Ave Maris, Magnificat, Da Pacem, Parce Domine, Tu Es Petrus.
