Our Summer/Fall 2021 Catalog is Now Available!

Welcome to our latest catalog of Traditional Music for the Contemporary Church!

We lean heavily on ancient tradition for much of this catalog, with pieces based on ancient texts (Salve Regina, Anima Christi, O Come, O Come Emmanuel) and music based on chant or in a medieval style (Anima Christi, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Three Medieval Carols, All Good Shepherds). Providing balance is the more contemporary, but certainly still traditional Fanfare, Chorale & Fantasia on a Theme by Elgar. With themes spanning the Eucharist, the Blessed Mother, Advent, and Christmas, these interesting and inspiring selections will enhance your liturgical celebrations and help to lead your congregation deeper into the mysteries of the Faith!


The Staff of CNP


New Liturgical Setting


Anima Christi

- Alex E. Hill

Perfect for a high school choir, a good children's choir, an adult choir or schola, this setting of the profound 14th century prayer is easily performed, with remarkable impact.

New Vocal Works


Salve Regina

- Colin Brumby

A beautiful hymn-like setting of the traditional Marian antiphon for unison choir (or alto or bass solo) and organ. Perfect for use at the end of Compline (after Easter until Advent) or at any Mass throughout the year, perhaps at the end of Communion time.


O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

- Christopher Bord

Ideal repertoire for the Fourth Sunday of Advent, this simple yet effective setting of the quintessential Advent hymn can be sung by any size group, from a simple quartet to a choral society.


All Good Shepherds

- Daniel Mitsui / Gary D. Penkala

Scored for SAB choir and organ, this easy Christmas motet with text by prominent Catholic artist Daniel Mitsui is medieval in flavor, with four chant-like modal verses. A perfect prelude to those rejoicing shepherds on that first New Testament night in Bethlehem!


Three Medieval Carols

- Colin Brumby

These three easy SATB carols capture both the interesting texts (in English, Old English and Latin) and jaunty melodies for which vocal music in the Medieval period was known.

New Organ Work


Fanfare, Chorale and Fantasia on a Theme by Elgar

- Gary D. Penkala

Find your best high school trumpeter and schedule this piece for organ and trumpet for September, as the academic year begins, or for Graduation or Baccalaureate Masses at the close. You, the young player and the congregation will all be pleased with this "cerebral," yet effective work!

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 are adding PDF samples for the pieces in our catalog. Currently, all of our pieces from the Fall 2009 and later catalogs include PDF samples, as well as several others. Enjoy!

Limited audio samples now available

You asked for it, you got least a little. We now have a very limited selection of audio samples available for pieces in our catalog. We will add new ones as we are able.
