The Magnificat antiphon varies for the fourth Sunday based on the calendar day, so seven booklets are potentially needed!

Immaculate Conception — Graduale chants

Graduale: Immaculate Conception (8 December)


These are the revised versions of the chants originally composed for the 1864 Dominican Supplementum ad Cantus Missarum by Fr. Pie Bernard, o.p., later revised by Bernard himself for the 1890 Graduale O.P.

A recording based on an earlier version of my edition of the chants may be found on Ave Maria: Dominicana Chant for the Immaculate Conceptionreleased in 2014 by Dominicana Records.
