Offline Mass Propers
This app is an offline version of the chant tools available at

It is mostly intended to be useful for containing the Gregorian Mass propers as well as the Gregorian Mass ordinaries as found in the Liber Usualis, and transcribed on GregoBase ( and there may be some mistakes in the chant. If you notice any, they can be corrected in GregoBase (if you go to and find the chant with the mistake, you can click the link above the chant on the left side to get to the GregoBase version of the chant, and edit it there to fix it, or request that it be fixed.)

Great app with minor exceptions

Great app except the playback function does not seem to work at all and most if not all of the clefs for the Gloria Patri are incorrectly placed. Other than that very good.

Best Gregorian App

This blows all the other tools out of the water. It has the most comprehensive ordinary and propers for masses, and the best psalm tool. There are some improvements I’d make-
1- have a “simple view” and “complex view” for the psalm tone tool- all we need to select is the tone, special ending/solemn, whether it shows all the verses written out or bonded/italicized, and the psalm/canticle!
2- there is an “English” version, however, none of the psalms are in English and it would require an external source to work.
3- the propers for the Novus ordo calendar don’t sync with the calendar like the traditional calendar dates do
4- having the other hours integrated into this would be so huge!

That’s all for now, but thank you so much Ben!
God Bless you!

When it works it’s great.

The sound often stops playing and it’s very hard to get it to play again. It definitely needs debugging. If you don’t need the sound function, it’s great for showing you the chants. I haven’t tried writing any. It will also show readings (without the incipits) but not the orations- and sometimes the readings don’t end at the right place.
