Where did the names for the Gregorian Masses come from?

From ancient manuscripts and sometime after St. Gregory the Great in the 600’s the Kyrie was preceded by a trope, a literary embellishment and figurative language to give artistic effect. For example, Orbis Factor means “Maker of the World” so it would have been sung, “Orbis Factor, Kyrie eleison, Orbis Factor, Christe eleison,” etc. Examples of these can be found on the Internet. The ‘liturgical reformers’ or committee, following the Council of Trent, did away with all tropes and many Sequences including the beautiful Laetabundus of Christmas. (In the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite, one of the Penitential Rites includes a troped Kyrie, “Lord, you were sent to heal the contrite of heart, Lord, have mercy.”) With the restoration of Gregorian chant Masses, settings of the Ordinaries were combined under numerical Masses and given the name of the troped Kyrie, for example, Mass I, Missa Lux et Origo. The various settings of the Ordinary were not composed as singular units, but were grouped together after study and the printing of the Liber Usualis. They often are centuries apart in composition and even of different modes. The popular and much loved Mass VIII, Missa de Angelis is in fact not of any Gregorian origin, but was a 16th century unison Mass, most likely originating in France. –David Domet
