These books are the graaduale of decades of work of research to restore the Roman Graduale from two independent bodies, though both had noovum with Dom Cardine and Dom Jean Claire. It has been an amazing day of dialogue on some of the complex restored pieces. Both authors have also exposed their way of working.
The Graduale Novum Has Arrived!
What are these books? St Pius X took its musical text to make the Graduale Romanumand asked all dioceses to use it with his famous motu proprio. These were to put an end to the use of the simplified Franciscan books of the curia.
The benedictine and roman scholars of the time knew that this graduale was a first step: This is also why Dom Gajard requested a special paragraph to be added in Sacrosanctum Conciliumwhich became The typical edition of the books of Gregorian chant is to be completed ; and a more critical edition is to be prepared of those books already published since the restoration by St. Work progressed in that direction at Solesmes, and also in other academic places.
This resulted in a better comprehension of their structural compositions modality, phrasing, ornamentation, etc The post-conciliar atmosphere did not really favour an immediate publication of new chant books, and it was really with the incentive of Pope Benedict XVI that some books could at last come out.
Liber Gradualis juxta ordinem Cantus Missae, ad usum privatum, ex codicibue antiquioribus ac probatis restauratus cura et studio Alberto Turco. Mgr Alberto Turco is a very established chant specialist. He has published many books on both Gregorian, Old-Roman and Ambrosian chant.
Mgr Turco has now published his full restoration of propers for Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holyweek, Eastertime, in separate booklets. The first of these came out in The ordinary time and sanctoral are yet to be published.
You can find the chant books in the Vatican bookshop amongst other places, and on the internet. So a very Roman church musician. They published the Graduale Novum with their own restored text. This book covers ggaduale whole of the liturgical year, though you do not always get different chant for both years A, B, C, as you get in the Triplex. This book has been launched in the Vatican in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI, and jovum benefited from a rather good promotion campaign.
Nevertheless, some pieces are really different. This stems notably from different liturgical and musical approaches.

So, for gradualle church musician, choosing the version to use is sometimes vraduale. In particular you get some grace notes which are very useful to discern more and less important notes. In some places you get small variations like ossia in modern music, which gives more choices coming from different manuscripts. Bovum Graduale Novum basically uses the square notation of the Vatican typical edition, it gives many more indications of and b. We must remember that these signs are not mentioned in most medieval manuscript, because it is assumed that the rule of not singing tritones is known ie you are not allowed to sing FGAH, BCDE and alike.
This is why you find them in square notation books from the late middle-ages onward. His notation is therefore more traditional, but it supposes that cantors are going to make choices. Both authors presented their books and the way they worked. Pascha nostrum, Domine Deus graduqle Off. In die sollmnitatis Com. Data est mihi Graduale Novum Graduale Romanum Liber Gradualis I nocum than many participants made their opinion as to which analysis was more convincing.
There was also a non strictly musical interesting point: Mgr Turco explained that for some pieces he decided to take into account the necessary continuous evolution with the existing books ie a hermeneutic of continuity approachnotably regarding some of the intonations.
This is indeed an important point. We have seen the disasters of reforms carried out with a hermeneutic of discontinuity. And not everybody is yet inclined to use chromatic and enharmonic scales.
So there is still a bit of work to do, but it is clear that both books are fraduale all more satisfactory than the Liberi currently in use. Now, of course, there is the legal issue. We now have the luxuary to have the choice to use 4 serious Gregorian chant books for parish masses Graduale Triplex, Graduale Romanum, Graduale Novum, and Liber Gradualis.
