Notes About Music: Adaptation of the plainsong of the Roman rite to the English text of the Anglican use for the services at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Toronto. The Introits and Communions are transcribed in full, while Graduals, Alleluias and Tracts are set to a number of simpler melodies, proper to the season, and Offertories are set to the Psalm tones of the Introits.
The process of adaptation occupied many years, beginning about 1920, but covers all the principal Feasts of the year.
Holograph: NL of C. (extracts).
Recordings: Commercial recording of Propers for Lent II (Church of St. M.M.).
