    Any of our EF friends, what did you do a few weeks ago?

    Well we celebrated the old feast a few weeks ago...
    Christus Vincit from the Worcester Antiphonal
    Asperges (Chant)
    Full Propers sung from the Graduale Romanum
    Mass XI Credo I (Sung by the children's choir)
    Dominus Regnavit, Josquin Desprez, (we will split the Psalm in half and sing half at the Offertory and the other half at Communion.)
    Communion motet 1.: Ave Maria chant (sung by the Children's choir)
    Communion motet 2.: Second half of the Dominus Regnavit setting above
    Communion motet 3.: Te Saeculorum Principem, Vespers hymn for the Feast of Christ the King.
    Domine Salvum Fac, from a Jacobite Manuscript c.1740.
    Simple Salve Regina

    As far as English hymns for the NO: To Jesus Christ our Soverign King.
  • Thinking of the line, "All on earth thy scepter claim", you could use all seven verses of Holy God we praise Thy Name.

    Pro/recessional: Crown him with many crowns
    Mass I, Credo I, Gregorian proper, psalmtoned verses for Gradual and Alleluia
    Offertory: Gloria laus et honor
    Communion: Te saeculorum principem

    A lot of chant, but my group doesn't learn part music easily, and there's not a lot for this anyway. The throwback to Palm Sunday and Easter might raise an eyebrow, but "Gloria laus" was the peoples' formal acceptance of the King, and the Resurrection was Christ's demonstration of His Kingship.

    Next year: I received from Horst Buchholz a scan of René L. Becker's Proper cycle, which he got from Becker's papers at University of Michigan. I type set these and they are up on IMSLP. They're good: homophonic and in close score with implied organ accompaniment. Pretty short, and pompous enough, and can be made to work even if you don't have all 4 parts (as I often don't).

    Tomjaw, I didn't think of Domine Salvum Fac settings. Hmm...

    What music did you use for 'Lo, He Comes...'?
    Was it perchance Bryn Calfaria?
