Ambrosian chant

The following clips, according to the post-conciliar Ambrosian rite liturgy -- not the classical Ambrosian liturgy -- provide some interesting views into the form of that liturgy as it stands now in the archdiocese of Milan, including some of the differences, but more particularly, I felt it would be of interest to those interested in hearing some of the differences in Ambrosian vs. Gregorian melodies.

Alleluia Sequence:

The Incensation (I've shown you this before):
