Introit: Gaudens gaudebo
"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, and my soul shall be joyful in my God: for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, and with the robe of justice He hath covered me, as a bride adorned with her jewels" (Is. 61:10).
This Introit translates the Blessed Virgin Mary's interior joy, the thrill that traversed her soul at the first instant of her life, when by the ineffable beauty of God that was revealed to her, she gave herself to Him with all her heart; a joy that she will later exteriorize by singing the Magnificat: Et exsultavit spiritus meus. The plenitude of grace encompasses her like a mantle: vestimentum salutis, the garment of salvation with which she will cover all those who will accept shelter beneath it.
Les éditions Clovis viennent de rééditer le livre de chant Magnificat publié en 2004, sous le titre «Chants liturgiques». L’association Sacra Musica avait édité auparavant, en 2011, un livre de chant intitulé Magnificat Dominum. Pourquoi deux livres différents ? Querelle de chapelle? Quelques rappels afin de saisir le pourquoi des choses.
Thanks to this full series, the learning "mess" is over. If until now, learning was a long struggle with decryption, this full series of Gregorian chant will change your life. No more guesswork! Over with approximation! You'll just sing right; you’ll use the notes marked in the book. Farewell to cold sweat and personal improvisations!
