Our Fall 2015 Catalog is Now Available!

Propers! That's a major focus of our Fall 2015 catalog, with six new products that complete our offerings of Propers to include settings for the entire Liturgical year. To these we've added an SATB version of an already very popular Mass setting and three excellent new choral pieces including one by Robert Benson, the newest member of our CNP family of composers. All this vocal music is rounded out by two new interesting, useful organ settings of hymns, both chant and otherwise. Enjoy!!

New Liturgical Settings!


Mass of Our Lady, Help of Christians

- Richard Connolly

Richard Connolly's Mass of Our Lady, Help of Christians has become one of our most popular Mass settings, both here in the U.S. and in Australia. Now, everything you loved about the setting for cantor, congregation and organ is available in this enhanced setting for SATB choir, congregation and organ. As an added bonus, the SATB and cantor versions are the same low price!

Mass Propers for Ritual Masses

- Gary D. Penkala

Several years ago, we published Mass Propers for Advent, Mass Propers for Christmastide, Mass Propers for Lent, and Mass Propers for Eastertide. These simple settings are easy enough for anyone to be able to do, and provide a way to incorporate the propers into your liturgies, with optional congregational participation. With these six new products, settings for the remainder of the Liturgical Year (Sundays) are now available, including Solemnities and Feasts that can fall on Sundays and Ritual Masses. Buy them individually, or as a complete set (all 10 products) for one low price!

New Vocal Works!


Prayer of the Venerable Bede

- Robert Benson

A setting of the beautiful Latin prayer of praise to Christ by Saint Bede the Venerable for soprano solo and SATB choir. Its delightfully fresh harmonies and beautifully flowing voice leading makes it a pleasure to learn and to listen to.


Tota pulchra es, Maria

- Timothy Flynn

This reverent Marian motet features excellent SATB part writing that is easy to learn due to consistent rhythm and some harmonic repetition. It will earn a treasured spot in your SATB choir's repertoire for years to come!


The Fruitless Fig

- Colin Brumby

Singable parts and impeccable voice leading are the hallmark of this original paraphrase of Matthew 21:12-22. Set to the lilting Welsh tune Ash Grove, this simple SATB piece can be sung either accompanied (with a brief introduction and coda) or a cappella.

New Organ Works!

Variations on Jesu dulcis memoria 

Variations on Jesu dulcis memoria

- Dennis R. Johnson

These four diverse and interesting, yet easy to learn variations on the well-known chant hymn Jesu dulcis memoria are perfect for any organist looking to grow his or her chant-based repertoire.

Two Communion Pieces for Manuals 

Two Communion Pieces for Manuals

- Donna Robertson

What could unite the 13th century chant hymn Adoro te devote and the 17th century German hymn Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele? Excellent, skillful writing for manuals that, while not overly difficult, is both challenging and interesting!

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.
