  1. I’m from Indonesia. Yogyakarta is my city in the island of Java.I’m a Catholic since my youth. I’m now sixty. Really I love “the old” Catholic music, especially Gregorian Chant. Chant is no longer used in the Catholic church of Indonesia. Chant being something obsolete, unsingable in the heart and voice of nowadays parishioners, even the priests. Fortunately I have one thick book of Liber Usualis. So I could learn and practice chant at my home (self study seriously since 2000). Than I join an oldies group of chant lovers. I feel today I could recite chant better and more fluently. But I need other books on chant, if any, that’s also impossible to have or look for in my country. I’ve tried through the internet including this effort. Thank you. Be happiest Easter, April 2014.
