    On Friday, our Cardinal Archbishop will be coming to celebrate the Mass of the Passion of St. John the Baptist. Are there any English chant propers available for this Memorial? I can't find anything so far. The GR lists:

    IN Loquebar de testimoniis tuis
    OF In virtute tua
    CO Posuisti, Domine

    I really only searched for the Introit, but since it doesn't seem to be assigned to a typical Sunday and this memorial is not a Solemnity, it doesn't appear in the SEP to my knowledge.

    Obviously, singing them in Latin isn't an option or I wouldn't have had to ask this. :) I think I might have a hard enough time convincing the powers that be to use the English translations.

    Taken care of. Thanks, Ben!

    I only made a start on indexing Burgess & Palmer here, while looking for Marian items, but you will at least find a page number for In virtute tua. Anyone is welcome to continue editing!

    You could always use the propers from the Nativity of St John the Baptist.

    I thought of that, but they are very specific to his Nativity. Seemed to defeat the purpose a bit.
