Gate of Heaven: Accompaniment Edition

$25.00
For organ. 32 Hymns. 135 pages.
Congregational, choir, and/or cantor unison.
Includes a generous compendium of acclamations and responses drawn from the hymnody.

NOTE: Only in the first (1989) printing of Gate of Heaven is a generous Addendum of acclamations and responses based on melodic material included. These are especially useful in ensuring a unifying melodic theme, such as rendered in Gregorian Masses.

Always seek tp give "pride of place," however, to the use of the Church's universal language, Latin; and to its "treasury of inestimable value," Gregorian chant. These principles are in keeping with the wishes of the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council, as enunciated in the first document to be promulgated, Sacrosanctum Concilium (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy) Chapter VI: Music Sacra (Sacred Music), n. 116, and art. 20.
