    Thanks go to @CCooze for setting the Issac, they are beautiful pieces of music.
  • Tom,

    Did you add the verse to the Bruckner, or did it come with it? (I've never heard the piece with a verse after it, but I'm learning all the time, so I may simply have missed this.)

    No, we sing the Bruckner, and then our cantor starts the chant verse text as sung in the Graduale, that was not set by Bruckner.

    I have found a volunteer to set the verse in the style of Bruckner, but our volunteer has a couple of day jobs!

    I think we can all be sure that Bruckner wrote the piece for this occasion but I have not found out why he did not set the piece in full. The same applies to the Palestrina Sicut cervus / Sitivit why is it set to the Latin Vulgate, and not to the Latin found in the Missale / Graduale... We may worry about the Graduale text being in sung in full, I suspect better musicians in times gone by did not worry about such things.

  • Tom,

    I can't guess about the other pieces, but the Palestrina appears to be set for the Easter Vigil, since in that place the text doesn't say "Quemadmodum...."
