English chants from the Missal

 Kyrie (Lord, have mercy)

I can't actually find an English version on YouTube; here's the Latin (i.e. Greek!), but it's the same tune.

Sanctus (Holy, holy, holy)

Agnus Dei (Lamb of God)

Taladh Chriosd (The Christ Child's Lullaby)

This is the version by Christina Stewart, with the English words by Bob Pegg: Other versions differ in various ways, but are still good to get a sense of how this song can sound:

Puer natus (A child is born in Bethlehem)

And the karaoke version (I like the rhythm of this recording):

Rorate caeli (Come, Saviour, come like dew)

A new job for an old blog

This blog has been practically mothballed for a couple of years, so regular readers (if any there be) will have to forgive me for repurposing it for a new task. I will be using this space to post links to music that the St Edward's parish choral group is, or might be, learning. I won't delete my old posts unless I spot any dead links, but I had better put in a disclaimer: this blog is not affiliated with any parish or diocese, and nothing I have posted here prior to this date is in any way related to St Edward's parish. It's just my personal sacred music blog where I used to share stuff that I liked!
