Unless I missed it, I’m surprised noone noticed the Graduale Novum /buch/ kirchenmusik-gregorianik/graduale-novum-de-feriis-et-sanctis. Graduale novum, t. I de dominicis et festis. Submitted by Anonyme on Wed, 04/15/ – Abbaye saint-pierre de solesmes 1 place dom guéranger. For now, I will close with a few very informative paragraphs from the beginning of the five page preface contained in the new Graduale Novum.

Yesterday I had the great joy of receiving in my mailbox two unexpected delights: Online orders can be made here [site entirely in German].
I plan to give a more thorough review on this volume in the coming weeks, but for now all I can say is that the book, for me, is a dream come true. And a look inside:.
Restoration of Gregorian chants – Wikipedia
A page from the Kyriale, which appears to be identical to the previous editions:. And, lastly, a look at the Order of Mass, contained in the back of the book, which conforms identically to the usage in the Missale Romanum:. Again, a more thorough review of this volume will be forthcoming. For now, I will close with a few very informative paragraphs from the beginning of the five page preface contained in the new Graduale Novum:.
In its Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, art. Convinced of the urgency of this request, a few members of the International Society for the Study of Gregorian Chant AISCGrefounded inhave been meeting since January of to begin work on restoring the chants of the Graduale Romanum They have been re-examining the ancient manuscripts that were consulted for the Editio Vaticana, in order to exploit the progress that scientific research has made since the publication of that edition.
The aim of this group was to achieve a more accurate rendition of the ancient chants; the basis for their restitution work were the adiastematic manuscripts from the 10th century, which are the oldest witnesses of the melodies and are written without notation lines, as well as the most important diastematic manuscripts from the 11th century which do render the exact intervals of the melodies. The wide dissemination of these books had done more to strengthen the awareness of the importance of a revised edition than the scientific publications had been able to do.
For each chant, not only were the suggested restitutions published for the first time, but also a detailed critical apparatus, which cited the pertinent manuscripts in support of each suggested change.
The appearance of the melodies will strike the casual reader as unfamiliar, not to say strange in the present edition in the case of a few chants. This fact has been known for over a century; but it has been comprehensively and meticulously confirmed above all through the researches of the last decades.
This volume can also be purchased at a cheaper price here. I bought mine via Book Depository much cheaper than the editors sell it: My copy hasn’t come yet.
I’m happy for you, Graduals. And trying nlvum be patient. I’ll tell you, Fr. Ruff, I was wishing I had your German skills a few months ago when I thought I gradaule placed a pre-order. I wasn’t prompted for any credit card information so I assumed I would be told when I could place my real order. I was very surprised to find the book in my mailbox yesterday! Your copy surely isn’t too far behind. OK, so when I magnify your photo I can see the pages well enough to sing through the Communion Scapulis suis, with the fa-sharp and do-sharp.
And maybe it’s because it’s fresh in my head from singing it on Sunday, but…wow, that is really strange. Once I wrapped my head around the sharps, it was going Novm for a bit…and I was saying to myself: Have a feeling some of these melodic restorations are going to be an acquired taste. I still want a copy. Karen and I had the distinct privilege of holding and viewing this volume before rehearsal this past Wednesday evening.
A piece of Church history — now available to all. I finally received my copy, and I am not generally satisfied with this work. For instance, I would take issue with graduael first 3 notes of the incipit of Ad Te levavi shown above. The adiastematic neumes above and below do not justify their melodic rendering here. If anything, the melody was originally a psalm tone incipit, Ut-Re-Fa, later changed to Sol-Re-Fa when modal theory was having effect, and as the manuscripts already show.
The 10th century manuscripts used may have already been influenced by modal theory. Neither is their manuscript source clear; I had to rely on novuj Graduale Triplex to get some sense of what is being used here. I really do not know what they are trying to accomplish here. We do not know what the original Gregorian melodies were like in the 8th-9th century as there was oral transmission, but we do have some ideas from the work that Solesmes has been doing in trying to get graudale ancient forms of melodies found in the manuscripts.

And then, what is the authentic chant here? Is it not the one from the Middle Ages which we have known for hundreds of years of which many manuscripts abound, or some illusive pre-Middle Ages manuscripts which have no stave notation? It seems there is some antiquarianism going on here, especially if we acknowledge nogum chant was still being composed during the Middle Ages albeit not for the Propers.
