DIACONALE: Chants for the Deacon at Mass edited by Edward Schaefer
Designed primarily as a rehearsal tool, this recently published book supports the deacon in his preparations to assist at Mass. A collection of those parts of the Mass that a deacon sings, it includes a sample formula for adding invocations to the Kyrie in Form C of the Penitential Rite, a sample Gospel along with its introductory and concluding sentences, sample formulas for the General Intercessions, the invitation to extend the Sign of Peace, the invitation to bow for the Solemn Blessing, and the Dismissal.
An appendix offers general principals for intoning the Gospel, compiled from the Missa Cantata. In order to familiarize the deacon with the flow and order of the chants, each of the intonations is placed within the context of its surrounding chants. [29 pp, 8 1/2 x 11, softbound]
