Four Recent Sources of English Language Chant

Editor’s note: Timothy Dusenbury received his Masters Degree in liturgical music from Saint John’s University School of Theology•Seminary in spring 2014, specializing in composition under Robert LeBlanc. He studied Gregorian Chant with me and also sang in my Latin Gregorian Chant schola. The following paper was written for a graduate liturgy course on the liturgical year which I taught. Tim worked independently in developing his views in this paper, and he raises all the right questions. His perceptive comments will provide much fodder for discussion. – awr

  1. It is probably well known to Pray Tell readers that one English chant resource featured in Mr. Dusenbury’s paper, Paul Ford’s “By Flowing Waters,” is published by Liturgical Press. I would like to mention that another, John Ainslie’s “English Proper Chants,” is also about to be published for North American audiences by Liturgical Press. It will be available (in melody and accompaniment editions) in June 2015.
