Sacrosanctum Concilium 117

The typical edition of the books of Gregorian chant is to be completed; and a more critical edition is to be prepared of those books already published since the restoration by St. Pius X.

It is desirable also that an edition be prepared containing simpler melodies, for use in small churches.

I believe these reforms have been completed; since 1974, if memory serves.

    Is this where the Solesmes editions come from?

    Don’t know about Solesmes. I think Todd was referring to the Graduale Romanum, published in 1974. The 1961 version, which is still used for Motu Proprio masses, can be seen in its entirety here: http://www.musicasacra.com/2006/10/graduale-romanum-1961.html
