The American Gradual, free download

Bruce Ford has offered something very exciting. It is a free download of his American Gradual, part 1. This goes from Advent to Baptism of Our Lord.

It is a straight rendering of the Gregorian chant in English, with adapted modern notes, which is precisely what so many have sought for so long. I think you will be thrilled with this. It fills a gap missing between the Psalm tones and the Simplex and the full Graduale Romanum. I can't tell you how many times I've had people ask for such a resource.

After he finishes this, he will go to print with it. Here is his email if you have questions or just want to thank him.
