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 only familiar tunes, & provide everything you need for FREE. Your parish peeps can sing them at sight. No reprint/streaming license or reporting necessary.
