Feast Of The Epiphany: Special Tones For The Chanting Of The Gospel And Proclamation Of The Date Of Easter And The Moveable Feasts For 2017.

Text and Illustrations are taken from NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT

Our good friends of The Schola Sainte Cécile have posted two items of interest for the upcoming Feast of The Epiphany; a Special Tone for the Chanting for the Gospel, and the Proclamation of The Date of Easter and of The Movable Feasts, which is Traditionally made after the Gospel, for the year 2017.

The Tone of the latter, also known from its first word as The Noveritis, is basically the same as that of The Exsultet. I have heard this special Gospel Tone at Mass, and it is really quite beautiful.

If you should decide to use these pieces in The Liturgy, you can download them in PDF Format, with some very nice decorations, at the following links: PDF of the Gospel; PDF of the Noveritis.

The following Text is from THE CHANT CAFÉ

The proclamation of the date of Easter, and other moveable Feasts for the forthcoming year, was one of the many things that was a practical necessity in time of old, but is kept within Liturgical use (similar to Candles providing light at Mass). It is something any Parish can use for the forthcoming Feast of The Epiphany.
