Attention Priests: Recordings of Prefaces

Recordings of twenty-eight prefaces in the new Roman Missal are now available for listening and free download at the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. Here you will find sung prefaces for celebrations occurring between the First Sunday of Advent on November 27, 2011, and the beginning of Lent in late February 2012. The location of prefaces on the NPM website follows the order in which they appear in the missal.
