MEDIA REVIEWS
In Chants of the Roman Missal: Study Edition, the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) has produced a `stand alone' edition of all the chants of the new missal along with an extensive and useful commentary that fills the first sixty or so pages of this publication. The commentary has two goals: to be a primer for those--especially presiders and those who would train them--who wish to use the missal chants and to provide the background and rationale for ICEL's adaptation of the Gregorian melodies and formulas for use with English texts. While in many cases one may disagree with aspects of the resulting melodies (in fact the authors fully admit this), it is useful to be aware of the wide range of factors considered by the committee. The information provided by this publication can only make more effective the rendering of these chants in our Eucharistic celebrations. The commentary concludes with a list of useful resources. Past
The Liturgical Press has provided an excellent service in pulling all the music out of the Missal-and not all editions have contained all the music written for the book-and putting it into a very beautiful single volume. . . . The binding is great quality and the print of the music is very clear and crisp. It is very much worth the $50. It would make an excellent gift for any Catholic musician or priest.
