July 28, 2013 – “‘Properly Speaking’: The Spiritual & Musical Riches of the Proper Prayers & Texts of the Mass”

// July 28th, 2013 // Sacred Liturgy / Sacred Music

Thr Propers, which are those prayers and texts that are different for each Mass, are little known to most Catholics these days. In their 2007 document, Sing to the Lord, the Bishops of the U.S. wrote: “Proper antiphons from the liturgical books are to be esteemed and used especially because they are the very voice of God speaking to us in the Scriptures.” Susan plays recorded examples of the Propers, both in English and Latin, and both chant and polyphonic, and relates these examples to specific liturgical days and their spiritual significance.
