Time for a commercial break: if any of you reading this happen to be parish music directors or some such creature, you may be interested in the materials which we use for chant Mass at the university I attend. If you are, go to Priory Press and take a look. It's good stuff, and the chants for the Mass are really not too hard. Our congregation can all sing the Ordinaries with us, and believe me, they're not all music majors. It takes some time to get used to a kind of music that you don't hear often, but then, if more people used it, it wouldn't take so much getting used to! Not like that dang syncopated stuff we get at Mass here when I'm home. I'll never get used to that. *grumble grumble grumble*
