Our Winter/Spring 2022 Catalog is Now Available!

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

One of the greatest challenges for a choir director is to find music that is high quality, but that the choir can learn in a reasonable amount of time and sound good when performing. Organists have a similar challenge, especially with the volume of music required every week. This catalog presents a set of pieces that should help in addressing that challenge. Whether you're looking for a children's choir (God Is the King), a unison choir (Two Chant Prayers), SAB choir (Alleluia Psalm for Easter Vigil), SATB choir (Four Easter Anthems, Sing Psalms and Hymns, Three Settings of "Passion Chorale"), or for an organist (Ten Trios for Organ), we have some very nice selections that we think will provide you with what you're looking for!


The Staff of CNP


New Liturgical Setting


Two Chant Prayers

- Alex E. Hill

The Prayer to Saint Michael and a paraphrase of the Te Deum, set for unison voices with a simple organ accompaniment. This collection is a perfect example of solid, simple, chanted music usable by just about any choir and useful for just about any Mass.


Alleluia Psalm for Easter Vigil

- Christopher Bord

Completely faithful to the rubrics and the traditions of the Vigil liturgy, Alleluia Psalm for the Easter Vigil is a great way for the choir to be intimately involved in singing the Liturgy on this great night.

New Vocal Works


Four Easter Anthems

- Colin Brumby

Four concise and beautifully written anthems to be sung during Eastertide that feature careful voice leading, reasonable ranges and singable text - perfect for the average parish choir!


Sing Psalms and Hymns

- Gary D. Penkala

Perfect for weddings and usable for any Sunday in Ordinary Time, this interesting ABA motet for SATB voices includes parts that are not difficult and have extremely comfortable ranges.

Three_Setting_of_Passion Chorale 

Three Settings of "Passion Chorale"

- J. S. Bach / arr. Christopher Bord

Three SATB settings of one of the most commonly used chorales of the master of homophonic voice leading, J. S. Bach. Challenging, but truly rewarding in their beauty, these chorales can be sung a cappella or accompanied by organ.


God Is the King

- W. A. Mozart / arr. Gary D. Penkala

A fantastic addition to your children's choir repertoire: not only is it a beautiful piece, but it also exposes the young singers to one of the giants of Catholic church music, W. A. Mozart!

New Organ Work


Ten Trios for Organ

- Josef Rheinberger

These little organ trios of Opus 49 are truly gems! Each is exactly two pages long and are offered by Rheinberger in a variety of keys and styles. Useful in their own right, they are also excellent teaching resources, introducing students to the organ trio form.

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.
