Hymns for the Corpus Christi Procession

This Thursday we are celebrating Corpus Christi with a Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form

The procession will be past the Hampton Pub, down the hill to the Western Road along the road and then back up Spring Street. Could be a four or five song walk. I have always found that no matter how much you rehearse a piece, as soon as you try and sing it outside it all goes horribly wrong. Add walking into the equation and it’s generally a recipe for disaster. So stick to very familiar music, and do the pieces you are most familiar with first.

Here is a list of what we will be singing and the order we will be singing it in for everyone to get practicing. All these videos have music with them so you can sing along:-





3. VERBUM SUPERNUM PRODIENS –  I can’t find a recording of this (only a couple of vids on You tube of the O Salutaris Hostia verses) So I’m afraid this is me singing it (plus mistakes):-




The words are HERE.   Score to follow when I find it online.   (p.940 in Liber Usualis)


4. SALUTIS HUMANAE SATOR   (We sang this on Ascension Day – on the Thursday and the Sunday)


5. LAUDA SION  (The CC Sequence which we will already have sung in Mass so should be fresh in everyone’s minds)
