English Propers

About the Propers

The Propers of the Mass are those prayers which change, and are “proper” to each Liturgy. The texts are primarily Psalms and settings of Gospel texts. The music stems from the elaboration of the 8 Psalm Tones within their modes. Masses are often named by the first word of the Introit (e.g. Requiem, LaetareGaudete)

Introit – Gradual – Tract – Sequence – Alleluia – Offertory – Communion
