Who we are

 We are Catholic.

 We are faithful to Rome, to Saint Peter, and to his present successor, Francis.

We accept the teachings of the Second Vatican Council. Its Apostolic Constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium states that

The Church acknowledges Gregorian chant

as specially suited to the Roman liturgy: therefore,

other things being equal, it should be given

 pride of place in liturgical services (§116).

Although we feel especially attached to the richness of the liturgy as it is celebrated in its extraordinary form, we fully recognize the validity and the legitimacy of the Mass as it is celebrated in its ordinary form, since both forms constitute two expressions of the one Roman rite.

 We are Canadian.


As the “.ca” suffix indicates, we are developing the present website in Canada.

Since our country boasts two official languages—English and French—we include, in the chant booklets found here, translations of the original Latin texts in both languages.

 We attend Mass in our parishes. We are not clerics but simple laypeople.

We try to sing Gregorian chant as best as we can, with the means we dispose of… or of which we do not.

 Sometimes we are obliged to forgo the more difficult parts of the Mass propers. In the booklets provided on this website, the Graduals, Tracts, and Alleluias are found in their abridged, rather than ornate, forms.

 These adjustments should simplify the work of the lay cantors who will perform the sung parts of the Mass in their parishes.

 As this website is a strictly volunteer project, we receive no remuneration of any kind for its development.

We discourage any commercial use of the documents found on this website:


We are laypersons.

 We are volunteers.

 We love Tradition.

     "“Freely have you received, freely give.”

(Matthew 10:8)

 We seek to develop this website in the spirit evoked by the words of Pope Benedict XVI in his letter of July 7, 2007:

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden

entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. 

It behooves all of us to preserve the riches

which have developed in the Church’s faith and prayer,

and to give them their proper place."
