Examples of Chant to be used in the new English Missal

The diocese of Marquette has launched its website on preparing the people of the diocese for the new translation of the Roman Missal: One Banquet, One Sacrifice, One Voice. The new translation is scheduled to be in use from First Sunday of Advent 2011.

The website is still being updated but gives a clear programme of preparation and catechesis.

Of particular interest to me was the link to The Chant Cafe with its tutorial videos on the chants to be used in the English Mass. They are clearly modelled on Gregorian Chant.

Here's the Gloria, for example:

Do go and listen to the others. May we hope for an end to 'big music' in the Mass and a return to the sober intoxication that characteris the authentic Roman Liturgy?
