    Put this together for a colleague. Unsure of the source. Perhaps she will pitch in with it here :)

  • I'm wondering what is the mode?

  • Is the clef supposed to be F and everything up a line?

    I don't know enough about modes, and the original I transcribed from did not have a mode indicated.

    Perhaps someone here could analyze it and I could add the mode to it? And yes, Clemens, I just double checked the original and I have the clef and notes correct.

    It sounds like the version in Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Canticles.

    Well, if it was shifted down a step, maybe.

    That's right. It's HPSC #122 (in English). The pattern is:

    (te----) te-do do
    (te----) sol fa-sol sol

    Or to notate it as plainchant:
    (sol---) sol-la la
    (sol---) mi re-mi mi

    Incidentally, in HPSC, Marier credited the tune to Marier with the tune name "Divine Praises".
  • Very interesting...
  • My guess is IV hypophrygian, transposed, judging by the fiat, amen.

    Although not the same melody as the one above, the Divine Praises (in Latin) are also found in the 1945 The Saint Andrew Daily Missal, and that melody is another appropriate one. The modern notation is only given for the first couple of verses, and the concluding "Fiat, fiat".

    There are also settings in the Pius X Hymnal (by Achille Bragers) and Cantus Populi (another Marier hymnal: a different setting there).
