Practice Resources for the Exsultet (New English Translation)

The Easter Vigil is coming up more quickly than one might think, and so I thought some of our readers might be interested to know (for the sake of knowing and practicing), that Corpus Christi Watershed has made available the following page which present the Exsultet chant according to the new English translation of the Roman Missal.

They have a couple of variants you can listen to, a lower pitch version, and a higher pitch version.

Here, for example, is the lower pitch version:

Easter Proclamation (Exsultet) - LOWER RECORDING - New Translation (Roman Missal 3rd Edition) from Corpus Christi Watershed on Vimeo.

The sheet music can be downloaded from the ICEL musical settings website. 

There is also a version here using traditional Gregorian notation.

Finally, organ accompaniments are also available for other parts of the Mass.
