The Introit from Latin: Introjt its most complete version, it consists of an antiphonpsalm verse and Gloria Patri that is spoken or sung at the beginning of the celebration. It is part of the Proper of the liturgy; that is, missla part that changes over the liturgical year.

In the Roman Rite of the Roman Catholic Church it is known as the antiphona ad introitum Entrance antiphonas in the text for each day’s Mass, or as the cantus ad introitum Entrance chant as in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal47 and as in the First Roman Ordo sixth to seventh century. In Ambrosian chant and Beneventan chantthe counterpart of the Introit is called the “ingressa”.

Originally, the entrance of the priest who was to celebrate Mass was accompanied by the singing of a whole psalm, with Gloria Missxl doxology.

While the psalm was at first sung responsorially, with an antiphon repeated by all at intervals, while a solo singer chanted the words of the psalm, it was soon sung directly by two groups of singers alternating with each other, and with the antiphon sung only at the beginning and the end, as is the usual way of chanting the greorian in the Liturgy of the Hours.

The change to this manner of singing the psalm has been attributed to Pope Celestine I — Pope Gregory I —after whom Gregorian chant is named, composed several antiphons for singing with the Entrance psalm.


If singing of the psalm was not completed by the time the Entrance procession arrived at the altar, the singers moved directly to the Gloria Patri and the final repetition of the antiphon. In time only the opening verse of the psalm was kept, together with the Gloria Patri, preceded and followed by the antiphon, the form of the Introit in Tridentine Mass Roman Missalswhich explicitly indicate this manner of singing the Introit.

The revision of the Roman Missal explicitly envisages singing the entire psalm associated with the antiphon, but does not make it obligatory. greogrian

The antiphons of most Introits are taken from Psalmsthough many come from other parts of Scripture. In some rare cases the antiphon is not from Scripture: The words of the antiphons are related to the theme of the feastday or celebration and most frequently have something in common with the liturgical readings of the Mass. In the Tridentine Mass the Introit is no longer the first text used in the Mass. Untileven misasl sung Mass the choir began the Introit only after introlt priest had begun those prayers, but Pope Pius X restored the old arrangement whereby the Introit accompanied the entrance procession of the priest with the ministers.

The Tridentine Mass has the priest read the Introit in the Missal even when it is also sung by the choir. It also has him make the sign of the crosswhen reading it, a relic of the time when Mass began with it.

Since the revision of the Roman Missal, the Entrance chant begins as the priest ihtroit. Its purpose is to open the celebration, foster the unity of those who have been gathered, turn their thoughts to the mystery of the celebration, and accompany the procession. If there is no singing at the Entrance, the antiphon in the Missal is recited either by the faithful, or by some of them, or by a lector; otherwise, it is recited by the priest himself, who may even adapt it as an introductory explanation.

If another rite immediately precedes Mass, such as the Palm Sunday procession or the various ceremonies that precede Mass at the Easter VigilMass begins with the collect ; there is no Entrance at that point and so no Entrance chant.


In the musical idiom of Gregorian chantIntroits normally take the form antiphon-verse-antiphon- doxology -antiphon. In the Gregorlan Missal, this form was, with very few exceptions, reduced to antiphon-verse-doxology-antiphon. Introits, like Offertories and Communionsare believed to have evolved from simpler reciting tones. Introit melodies show this musical parentage most clearly, and are often anchored around two reciting notes which may be repeated or percussed.

The Introits of Old Roman chant share many similarities with their Gregorian cousins, and often include a repeated extra verse that fell out of use in the Gregorian repertory.

In the same way as Church documents are referred to by their incipit their first words in Latin[6] Mass formulas are known by the incipit of their Introit, which is the first text in the formula. In the Anglican CommunionIntroit is the name given to the hymn or metrical psalm which is sung at the start of a service, a tradition which dates ihtroit to the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England.
