New Chant Resource Product Now Available!!

Solesmes Chant Resource Set [Liber cantualis + Gregorian Melodies, Volumes 1 & 2]

- Monks of Abbaye Saint-Pierre de Solesmes, France

A marriage made in heaven (or perhaps inspired by heaven)!

This set combines the new Solesmes edition of the Liber cantualis with two CDs, produced by the monks of Solesmes, that record most of the chants in the Liber cantualis, all at a deeply discounted price. It is a prefect teaching tool for the beginning Schola, since it contains the complete Order of Mass, seven chant Masses, the Requiem Mass, four sequences and 40 familiar hymns and other chants — truly some basic music that every congregation should hear (and sing!).


Our Summer/Fall 2016 Catalog is Now Available!

Our new Summer/Fall catalog is one of our most varied to date, and truly includes something for everyone! Whether you're looking for a new Mass setting, music for Communion time, 2-part or SATB anthems for your choir or vocalists or organ works, we have some superb new pieces for you! Many returning CNP composers are represented here (including Robert Benson, Colin Brumby, Glenn Caluda, Gregory Hamilton, Gary Penkala and Alan Smith) as is our most recent new composer, David O'Donnell.

We know you'll enjoy this delightful smorgasbord of new Traditional Music for the Contemporary Church!

New Liturgical Settings


Funeral Mass

- Colin Brumby

A practical, well-written Mass setting specifically designed for use in funerals. The simple, traditional call-and-response technique allows anyone to participate in the musical Mass setting, even if they've never sung it before!


Stirling Bridge Mass

- Gary Penkala

This singable Mass setting is built around an old Scottish chant, which comprises the music for the Gloria movement. It is easily sung by cantor and congregation, or by congregation alone, although the Gloria is most effective in alternation.


Psalm for Communion: Taste and See

- David O'Donnell

This simple, yet varied setting of the most iconic Eucharistic psalm, Psalm 34, begins with a simple refrain for congregation combined with five verse for choir. It mirrors the noble simplicity of the Roman Rite and offers a perfect complement for Communion time.

New Vocal Works


Two-part Motets for Advent

- Gregory Hamilton

Two famous Advent texts, one in English, one in Latin, provide the foundation for these motets set by Gregory Hamilton for two-part choir, with organ accompaniment. Effective, useful and flexible, these excellent motets can be sung by treble voices, male voices, or a mixed voice choir.


Breathe on Me, Breath of God

- Alan Smith

A thoroughly British SATB anthem with rich choral parts, but easily sung, with quite comfortable ranges. This is an absolutely beautiful anthem for Pentecost or Confirmation — you'll be glad that you programmed it!


God Be In My Head

- Colin Brumby

A setting of the beautiful prayer from the Sarum Primer that is a true pleasure to sing. This two-part piece is a strict canon at the unison, and is a simple yet fulfilling work requiring little rehearsal time.


Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending

- Robert Benson

This rousing hymn arrangement is set for SATB choir and organ, with treble choir or congregation joining on the first and last verses. Fitting for the first part of Advent, which deals with the Second Coming of Christ, this would also be appropriate for the last Sunday of the Church Year.


In medio Ecclesiæ

- Gary Penkala

Written for an ordination, this beautiful SATB motet is based on the text and the Gregorian melody for the Introit for the Common of Doctors of the Church. The Old Testament text is appropriate for any celebration with a ministerial theme, especially one promoting the "New Evangelization".

New Organ Settings


Little Fantasy on 'Veni Emmanuel'

- Glenn Caluda

A variety of techniques and textures are explored by Glenn Caluda in his setting of this most popular Advent hymn. Easy to moderate in difficulty, this arrangement is well-written and would make an excellent prelude for an Advent Mass or Penitential Service.


New Hymn Accompaniments, Volume 3

- Gregory Hamilton

This third volume in our New Hymn Accompaniments collection includes free accompaniments for ten hymns familiar to Catholic parishes. The melody always appears in the top voice, making these harmonically creative settings very easy for the congregation.

Seminarian Discount!

Seminarians have it rough. On one hand, the number of new things they are required to purchase for their studies is extensive, and the cost of the education itself is not cheap. At the same time, they are full-time students, most with no steady income, and they're not looking at a financially lucrative salary post-graduation to help pay their school debts.

As a very small way to assist with this problem, CNP now offers a 25% discount on all orders made by U.S. Roman Catholic seminarians. To qualify for this discount:

  1. On the order form or checkout page, check the box marked "Seminarian".
  2. Have your order shipped to a U.S. Roman Catholic seminary (including PNAC).

That's it! Once we have verified the address, we will send you a bill (either by US mail or email via Paypal - you choose) with the discount applied.

Limited PDF samples available

At your request, we have begun to add PDF samples for the pieces in our catalog. Currently, all of our pieces from the Fall 2009 and later catalogs include PDF samples, and several others have been added, as well. We will be adding new ones as we are able. Enjoy!

Limited audio samples now available

You asked for it, you got it...more or less. We now have a very limited selection of audio samples available for pieces in our catalog. We will be adding new ones as we are able.

Standing Order Service

Check out our Standing Order Service. With it, you get all the new CNP music, hot off the press, at a 10-15% discount!!
