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.
