    Need a hymn for our school Mass on Nov. 22. Looked in St. Basil and St. Gregory hymnals, but can't find a hymn to St. Cecilia. Internet search just brings-up Benjamin Britten - a bit our of our reach. Anyone know of a decent hymn to this Saint? Thanks
  • First one that comes to mind.

    A Hymn for St. Cecilia

    for s.a.t.b. and organ, by Ursula Vaughan Williams (words) and Herbert Howells (music)

    we sang it in the University Chorale last spring. It's beautiful.

    "Let the Deep Organ Swell the Lay" is No. 105 in the St. Gregory Hymnal.
  • Richard Proulx has a nice "Hymn to St. Cecilia".

    There's a full PDF preview, and a recording sample on that page.
