Entrance Antiphon Hymns Project

Entrance hymns for literally EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR carefully adapted from the authentic liturgical texts.  
Introduce Entrance Antiphons at Mass AND keep the entrance hymn. We use very familiar tunes and provide everything you need for FREE. Your parish peeps can sing them at sight. No reprint license necessary.
