Ad Communionem@2x

The Gregorian Communion antiphons from the 1961 Graduale Romanum printed together with psalm verses fully notated in the “Introit” tones. Arranged in the same order as in the Graduale.

The texts and melodies of the verses are from the Latin Vulgate (as in the 1962 Solesmes volume, Versus Psalmorum et Canticum) with an inline English translation from the Douay-Rheims (Challoner) Bible.
