Children’s First Chants is a practical, self-teaching book that enables children (7+) to learn a simple repertoire of Gregorian chants for Holy Mass and various well-known prayers.
Do you want your child to sing but don’t know where to start? Does your child enjoy music and need some inspiration to sing? Whether your child has been singing for years, or not at all, Children’s First Chants will help them grow in their love for sacred music!
St Augustine said that ‘he who sings well, prays twice’ – is there a better way to help children to pray than by teaching them to sing the Liturgy, to sing their prayers, to sing ‘hosanna to the Son of David’?
Children’s First Chants contains simple instructions on how to read and play a selection of 12 Gregorian melodies. Printed on 400 gsm thick paper board, it is suitable for young children. All translations of the Latin texts are provided in an appendix.
Chants your child will learn:
Et Cum Spiritu Tuo
Grace Before Meals
Veni Creator Spiritus
