Introit Hymns for the Church Year
Item #: 017291
Here are more than 100 hymns based on the texts the Church wants us to sing during the Entrance Rite of the Mass, set to tunes your congregation already knows! The hymns are based on introit antiphons and psalms from the Roman Gradual for the Sundays and solemnities of the liturgical year. The beautiful, poetic hymn verses include psalm paraphrases from the finest English-language metrical psalters and new psalm paraphrase texts by Tietze. All are set in metrical form to familiar hymn tunes that have been sung during the last 40 years. Every hymn is presented in harmony, ideal for congregations or choirs who enjoy hymn singing in parts. The companion 8.5 x 11 hole-punched accompaniment packet fits easily into a WLP Ceremonial Binder. Introit Hymns for the Church Year was compiled and written by Christoph Tietze (St. Mary Cathedral, San Francisco) as part of his doctoral thesis at Oxford University. A priceless companion to any missal or hymnal you already use!
