My 201o St. Cecilia's Day post mentions a litany to the patron saint of music used by members of the Church Music Association of America. This prayer is used as a novena beginning the 22nd. of each month. The forum post has links to both a recited and chant form, the chant having been composed by a member of the CMAA.
There has been a small problem. The links to copies of each form have been unavailable for quite a while now. No one wanting copies have been able to secure any.
Via Google Docs, here are new links to the recited (Word) and chant (PDF) form.
For now, I hope this will be useful. I would eventually like to link to the originals, but I will need help with that.
(UPDATE) The forum actually allows me to attach my copies to the post. So I did. The offer to link them still stands.

It is a very educational as well as spiritually uplifting time. It is truly, as they like to promote, "Seven Days of Musical Heaven."
One of the more recent forums at the CMAA website was a roll call of attendees. While I made my regrets, I also said I would keep them in my prayers this week.
St. Gregory the Great, St. Cecilia, St, John the Baptist, and all you heavenly angelic choirs--pray for them and all church musicians. May God renew these servants in body, mind, heart, and soul. May He bless them abundantly.
Think of me kindly, those who are there and know of me.
