    I once heard monks chant the passion narrative (one of the Gospels) in English.

    Would someone be able to direct me to an online source for it?

  • I have a draft of the St. Luke Passion for this year's Palm Sunday, and have posted a finalized version of the St. John Passion at my website; I've included the planctus ("weeping") tone in my versions.

    That's perfect, thank you. A beautifully formatted setting too. May I ask, what kind of software do musicians use these days for this type of project?

  • Jenny, if you did this in Gregorio, could you post the gabc? Thanks!

    Many of us are using Gregorio (GABC), but some of us to have a greater control of the spacing are using Font based chant, I use Caeciliae, but other fonts are available.
