PSALM 151

UPDATED MONDAY II-8-16.

Psalm 151 is the collection of original settings of Introits, Responsorial Psalms, Alleluias, Offertories, and Communions in English for the three-year Sunday liturgical cycle  Much of this project derives from a set of Psalm settings of mine that goes back as early as 1995 (plus a couple as early as 1991/1992, and even one that dates back as early as 1986).

Many of the settings are written (in some cases, rewritten) completely in chant style, with nearly all of them using a Gregorian Psalm tone and alternate SATB tone for the versicles, while a good chunk of my earlier settings (many with metrical responses, and many with original Psalm tones) have been retained, some of which have been used at the parish where I am organist, and others which have been used elsewhere, in cities such as Boston (example: one musician from Boston actually used my Psalm 34 for her own wedding) and St. Louis (at the Cathedral Basilica, to boot, and their music director, Dr. Horst Buchholz, is an excellent composer in his own right).

As a companion to Psalm 151, there are several indices, all of which you will find linked on the sidebar.  One is a Liturgical Calendar link which covers the entire three-year Sunday Lectionary.  Three other links are for each of this year (2016 as I write this) and the next two years (2017 and 2018, also as I write this), with actual dates.  The links on those pages lead to the respective Sunday or feast, which has the link(s) to the Psalm(s) you need.  You'll even be able to find the date of Easter (and all the other movable feasts whose dates depend on that of Easter) for these three years without having to do any special math or find the golden number (though you can find those tricks in the back of the Book of Common Prayer, which is to Anglicans and Episcopalians as the Roman Missal is to  Catholics).

There are some yet even older versions of some of my Psalms that are still in the Chabanel Psalms over at the Corpus Christi Watershed.  Jeff Ostrowski has done a marvelous job collecting musical contributions to that project - Psalms from Sam Schmitt, Aristotle Esguerra, Royce Nickel, Richard Rice, Arlene Oost-Zinner, Fr. Samuel Weber, OSB, yours truly, and from Jeff Ostrowski himself.  I for one never limit myself to one collection of Psalm settings, and neither should you.  I'm not about to take away from anyone, but to only add to the vast collection of the great settings already out there.

All of the works set forth here are under the Creative Commons License 3.0 BY-ND.  That means you can copy the work, and perform the work, free of charge, provided proper attribution and credits are given.  Also, no derivatives of the work are to be made (in music slang, you cannot rip off little tidbits and add it to your own material and call it yours).  Oh, and no selling of my work.  Only I can do that (or provide a license to do so, for a fee).

So, there you have it.  Psalm 151.  Feel free to proclaim the Psalms loud and clear.

AD MAJOREM GLORIA DEI!

NEWLY REVAMPED: Hymns and Miscellaneous Responsories

HYMNS AND MISCELLANEOUS REPONSORIES (Link is to the alpha index!)

Re-worked for better margins, fonts, etc.  Also, accent marks on any lyric in Latin (also done in Psalm 151 and in Alleluias and Gospel Acclamations).

Some of these also match with certain propers within certain Masses.  The liturgical calendar links on the sidebar will help find if there are any matches.

Some tunes are completely original, while some are based on chant themes (namely those chant melodies given to the propers in the Graduale Romanum).

Enjoy!

VERBUM SUPERNUM PRODIENS

One of the things I always liked about St. Thomas Aquinas is his uncanny ability to make two hymns out of one.  For example, the last two verses of Sacris Solemniis is Panis Angelicus; the last two verses of Pange Lingua is Tantum Ergo.  In the hymn we're featuring today, set to an original tune based in part on the Gregorian In Splendoribus Sanctorum, the last two verses of the Verbum Supernum Prodiens is the O Salutaris Hostia.
