Excellent new resource for singing the Propers!!!


The Proper of the Mass for Sundays and Solemnities

- Fr. Samuel F. Weber OSB

This book is, in some ways, the English-language equivalent of the Graduale Romanum combined with the Graduale Simplex. In it, Fr. Weber provides four or five levels of settings, from complex to very simple, for each antiphon, along with optional psalm verses in the Gregorian psalm tone style. It is incredibly versatile, providing an option to suit the abilities and needs of any choir or cantor. If you haven't started singing Propers yet, this is the ideal book to get you started. If you are already singing Propers, you will want this book as a valuable resource that you will find yourself using every week!

New additions to our Treasury of Sacred Music series


O Kind Creator

- Benjamin Rogers, arr. Raymond Clark

This creative arrangement of an English translation of the Lent Matins hymn, Audi benigne Conditor combines a Sarum plainsong chant setting for all five verses with two verses set to an SATB arrangement by Benjamin Rogers (1614-1698). It's a rewarding and satisfying addition to any choir's Lenten repertoire!


Quia vidisti me, Thoma

- Hans Leo Hassler, ed. Mark Siebert

This Hassler setting of Christ's words to St. Thomas is perfect for the Second Sunday of Easter, when the Resurrection appearance in John 20 is the Gospel reading. It is also a magnificent example of authentic fugal counterpoint — by-the-book, yet wonderfully expressive!


Sacris solemniis

- Claudio Casciolini, arr. Timothy Flynn

A beautiful, yet easy addition to your choir's Eucharistic repertoire, this motet by the former Maestro di cappella at the church of San Lorenzo in Damaso (Rome) features comfortable vocal ranges and primarily homophonic textures with some imitative counterpoint at the very end.

New Vocal Works!


Jesus Christ Is Risen Today

- Matthew Koraus

A festive setting of the most familiar and oft-used Easter hymn "Jesus Christ Is Risen Today," for SATB choir, 2 trumpets in C, congregation and organ. With music for four verses, an introduction and three interludes, this joyful setting provides abundant music for an extended Eastertide processional!


Ave Regina cælorum

- Calvert Shenk

Equally suited for soprano soloist or a unison choir - even a children's choir - this mildly chromatic setting of the Marian text for compline would make an appropriate solo during Lent, perhaps at the end of Communion time, or even more dramatically, as a calm choral piece at the end of each Lenten Sunday's Mass.


Adoro te devote

- Andrew Motyka

This lovely setting of an English translation of the Eucharistic chant hymn, Adoro te devote, alternates unison and SATB verses. Not difficult, very effective, with a solid accompaniment - this piece should appear at Communion sometime this year in your parish!


Two Treble Motets

- Aurelio Porfiri

Two short treble motets (Ave maris stella and Iesu dulcis memoria) for unison choir with occasional measures for SA. Clear writing and a supportive organ accompaniment make these simple yet versatile pieces perfect for any treble choir!


Vere languores

- Mark Siebert

A mainly homophonic setting of the text Vere languores ("Surely he hath borne our infirmities") which uses a variety of dynamics to portray the drama of the lyrics. This is an effective contemporary addition to any SATB choir's Holy Week repertoire!


Canite tuba in Sion

- Mark Siebert

Equally useful for both Advent and Lent, this SATB setting of the powerful text from Joel 2:1 ("Blow the trumpet in Zion") includes a lively organ accompaniment at the beginning and end that surrounds a milder middle section.

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!!

Shopping Online - Fast and Easy!!
