NOTES AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Most music on this website is chant. Chant follows the rhythm of
the text, and thus there are frequent meter changes. For more
information read:

SPECIAL NOTE TO THOSE WHO DOWNLOAD MUSIC FROM
THIS WEBSITE:

I am constantly adding, updating, and correcting music files.
SInce I am responsible for entering the music in a computer to
create these files, and for maintaining this website, I occasionally
make typographic and formulaic errors. We prefer that the latest
versions with corrections should be used by Church chanters
and choirs, so if you have downloaded music in the past, and
something does not seem right, please check for updated
versions and replace the old ones.
Thank you.
