Graduale Romanum 1961

Posted in Gregorian Chant, Literature, Scores, Web Resources November 2, 2006 at 6:49 AM

Kompletná kópia graduála z roku 1961 pribudla na stiahnutie na stránke americkej asociácie chrámovej hudby. Ide o pdf súbor s podloženým textom, je v ňom teda možné aj vyhľadávať. Celá kniha je oskenovaná s rozlíšením 600 dpi.

K dispozícii sú tieto súbory:

Jednotlivé súbory sa navzájom prekrývajú, ak teda stiahnete prvý súbor, ostatné nepotrebujete.

Na stránke nájdete aj index Graduála z roku 1974 (6 strán, 0.4 MB), ktorý je pomôckou pre použitie ostatných súborov podľa pokoncilového usporiadania — podľa indexu je možné vyhľadať potrebné spevy na tú-ktorú príležitosť v graduáli z r. 1961.

Spevy na prijímanie

Posted in Gregorian Chant, Scores, Web Resources September 25, 2006 at 10:40 PM

Na stránke americkej asociácie chrámovej hudby — “The Church Music Association of America” sú k dispozícii na stiahnutie spevy na prijímanie v kvadratickej notácii. Antifóny sú presným prepisom z Graduale Romanum (1974), žiaľ spolu s iktami (pre vysvetlenie viď: návod na čítanie kvadratickej notácie). Zreteľným prínosom je však doplnenie o príslušné verše žalmu (v GR nájdeme pri speve na prijímanie iba odkaz na potrebný žalm a jeho verše). Verše žalmu sú prevzaté z “vulgata nova”.
V čase písania tohto príspevku je k dispozícii 57 súborov vo formáte pdf, ďalšie by mali postupne pribúdať. Užitočnou pomôckou (nie len k spevom na prijímanie) sú znotované nápevy doxológie (Gloria Patri).

Autorom je Richard Rice, vedúci súboru Canticum Novum Schola — Washington, USA.
