  • Amongst the settings listed by Jeffrey above there is not a version of Gloria IV (Cunctipotens genitor Deus). Can someone put me onto this if it is available.

    Wouldn't it be fantastic if we had two or three really great English chants for the Gloria (for example) in the commons, and then composers could write numerous unison / polyphonic, accompanied / unaccompanied, congregational / choral parts to be sung in alternation (at the double bars) with the parts that, being standard, the congregation would already know? You could then change music from season to season, week to week, or even from Mass to Mass (depending on resources available), and the congregation would still be able to participate in the singing regardless. Why this wasn't the model before, I don't know. But the new translation gives us this opportunity.

    @incantu, you are brilliant! @:osborn, one answer might be: don't use those settings! on the other hand, you'd be surprised at the variety that existed with regard to text setting in medieval times.
