This is part of an ongoing series of equal-voice fauxbourdons designed to accompany antiphons and psalmody for both the Mass and Divine Office.
These are easily adaptable for a schola of any size. Sing a few verses with the Gloria Patri or all the verses depending on the time needed for the distribution of communion and its procession. The antiphonal nature along with the mix of plainchant and polyphony are sure to make any liturgy all the more solemn and prayerful.
It was first set to the Communio text for Ultimo festivitatis die for the Vigil of Pentecost.
Premiered & Recorded May 27, 2023 at Chapel of Ss. Peter and Paul, Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, FSSP | Denton, NE for Rev. Fr. Quinn Gomez's First Mass.

Communio Tone 5 à 3: Ultimo festivitatis/Benedic anima | 2022
John 7: 37-39 | Ps. 103: 1, 30-31, 33-34
On the last day of the festivity Jesus said: He that believeth in Me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water: now this He said of the Spirit Which they should receive who believed in Him, alleluia, alleluia.
Bless the Lord, O my soul: O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great. Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth. May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works. I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. Let my speech be acceptable to him: but I will take delight in the Lord. Glory be to the Father...
