Our Spring 2015 Catalog is Now Available!

Liturgical settings for Good Friday, vocal works for Lent and Easter, vocal works with Eucharistic themes and new organ works for Ordinary time all come together in this, our Spring 2015 catalog. Four of these gems come from composers who are new to the CNP family of composer: Steven Ottomanyi, Carol Traupman-Carr, Timothy Flynn and Roger Petrich. We are thrilled to welcome them, and know that you will enjoy their music as much as we do. Many thanks to our returning composers for their excellent new works, as well…we love to see these new pieces of "Traditional Music for the Contemporary Church!" Enjoy!!

New Liturgical Settings!

Faithful Cross 

Faithful Cross

- arr. Raymond Clark

The perennial problem - what music to schedule for Adoration of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. The solution? This new setting based on the traditional Crux fidelis chant! Not overly difficult and flexible enough to cover a short or long time, this piece is just what is needed.

The Reproaches 

The Reproaches

- James Morrison

At long last, we have available a version of Mr. Morrison's Reproaches that use the text from the new Roman Missal. With beautiful choral harmonies, and a complete setting of the traditional text, this is also ideal for music during Adoration of the Holy Cross on Good Friday.

New Vocal Works!

Finished the Strife 

Finished the Strife

- Steven Ottomanyi

Explore the mystery of the Resurrection with this modal motet that is useful throughout Eastertide. Set for SATB chorus and handbells, the text is an English translation of the Latin hymn Finita iam sunt prælia.



- Sr. Edith Scholl

From Mount Saint Mary Abbey in Wrentham, MA comes this marvelous Easter motet for SSA voices. The text is a single, powerful word: "Alleluia!" The music is carefully crafted counterpoint, elegant in the interplay among the voices, but not inordinately difficult.

O Come and Mourn 

O Come and Mourn

- Nicola Montani, arr. Carol Traupman-Carr

This motet for a cappella SATB choir and soprano descant is an accessible piece for Lent or Holy Week. With refined harmonies and beautiful vocal part writing, this setting of Nicola Montani's tune O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile should be in your choral library!

Attende Domine 

Attende Domine

- Matthew Koraus

This beautifully modern take on the traditional Lenten chant showcases writing that is very reminiscent of Maurice Duruflé. It is arranged for SATB choir with optional congregation on the refrain, and utilizes a skillfully-written organ accompaniment.

Ave verum 

Ave verum

- Timothy Flynn

With clear, clean, homophonic choral writing, using extremely comfortable vocal ranges, this setting of the traditional Latin Eucharistic text is accented by a very simple, yet effective organ accompaniment.

Christ Is the Heavenly Food 

Christ Is the Heavenly Food

- Roger Petrich

Sometimes two-part music is exactly what a choir needs, whether it's because there aren't enough voices to handle four-part music, or just to have something more simple on hand. This useful, two-part Eucharistic anthem is perfect when that need arises!

New Organ Works!

Two Hymn Tune Postludes 

Two Hymn Tune Postludes for Manuals

- Donna Robertson

These superbly crafted settings of two familiar hymn tunes (Ratisbon and Ebenezer) use all the potential of the organ's manuals. They're ideal for pianists just learning organ or for veteran organists looking for variety in repertoire!

Fantasia on Salve Regina 

Fantasia on 'Salve Regina'

- Adam Taylor

A well constructed Fantasia of moderate difficulty, this piece uses both the Gregorian Solemn Tone and Simple Tone of the Marian antiphon Salve Regina. With numerous short sections in a variety of textural formats, this Fantasia is appropriate for any Marian feast day.

A Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours for "The Rest of Us!"

The Everyday Catholic's Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours 

The Everyday Catholic's Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours

- Daria Sockey

The Liturgy of the Hours is the prayer of the Universal Church, but for many, the shear complexity of the mechanics of saying this prayer can be overwhelming. Add to that the difficulties in trying to include another set of prayers into our daily routine, and many of us give up before we even get started. This book by Daria Sockey is the answer: it helps you to start slowly and build a daily habit that can fit into even the busiest schedules.

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!!

To make ordering as fast and easy as possible we have added shopping cart technology to our online catalog. When you see a piece you like, add it to your shopping cart and when you're ready order, just check out. Everything else is done for you.
