In preparation for Pentecost, we will be focusing on two chants: the Magnificat (the song of Our Blessed Mother, enlivened by the Holy Spirit), and the Veni Creator Spiritus (the traditional Hymn to the Holy Spirit).
The Magnificat has a variety of melodies, so we will become familiar with how to read the different modes in order to be comfortable with whatever version that is placed in front of us.
This is one example:
Here is a practice video for the Veni Creator with the notes:
and here is one focusing on the pronunciation:
Visit this post from Vespers for help with the Magnificat pronunciation.
Also, this will be our last day working on the solemn tone for the Regina Caeli, so check out this post for a little extra practice before Thursday.
