The Liber Usualis, ("The Book of Common Use") is a practical combination of the various official liturgical-musical books of the Roman Rite(e.g., Kyriale, Graduale Romanum, Cantorinus, Officium Hebdomodae Sanctae Instauratus) used for both chanting the varioius parts of the Divine Office and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
It also contains a wealth of ancient Latin hymns, ad libitum Kyriale modes, litanies and even the Ordo Missae (the Ordinary, Prefaces and Canon of the Mass) allowing it to also be used in assisting at Mass.
