Summary/Abstract: This article presents an outline of the history of shaping communio chants (one of the Proprium Missae chants for Communion): from Christian antiquity (Cyril of Jerusalem, John Chrysostom, Apostolic Constitutions), through the Middle Ages (Ordo Romanus Primus), the post-Tridentine period (Communiones totius anni by Mikołaj Zieleński), to the reform of the Second Vatican Council, to which we owe the collection of antiphonae ad communionem (Graduale romanum, Graduale Simplex, Missale romanum, Ordo Cantus Missae) in liturgical books, and indirectly also contemporary chants and songs intended for the communionprocession.
