Thoughts regarding the Ignatius Pew Missal


Is it good? It looks good from what I can tell. Is the cantor, piano/organ versions good?

I’m thinking about suggesting this to our Pastor, because (1) it seems A LOT better than Breaking Bread and cheaper too.

How can I overcome any possible objections?

Thank you and God Bless.


Looks very nice. Attractive and comprehensive.
BUT…you have to have a parish that’s into chant.
Ours is not, and doesn’t want to be. I’ve tried.
Our pastor wouldn’t go for it, neither would the new Director.
Nice hymn selection though. :slight_smile:
