    Asking for a friend.
    He remembers seeing a scanned copy of a book of polyphony and chant for holy week linked here on the forum.
    The book was from circa 1956-1965.
    It was from Westminster cathedral or the bishop's conference in England.
    We're typing up a benedictus from the book, but we don't have the original scan anymore and need to fix up what might be transcription worries. Chant verses alternate with satb verses. Similarly there's a Pange Lingua, alternative chant and polyphony.
    Yes, I've tried searching.
    Does it ring a bell for anyone?
  • Is this the one by Sir Richard Terry?

    Seems like it. Music for Holy Week by R. R. Terry, revised for the 1955 Holy Week. You can download the pdf at the link.

    I see a Benedictus like the one you describe on the last 3 pages. There's also a Pange Lingua alternating chant and polyphony I've used myself on pages 14-15.
