English Chant Propers...

I came across this post at The New Liturgical Movement. It is a chant setting for the newly translated Gloria that will be implemented with the new missal later this year. I think it is a beautiful setting of the vernacular and a fine representation of the principle of Sacrosanctum Concilium: that Gregorian Chant should have the pride of place in the Roman liturgy. Let's hope we see more and more liturgical music of this quality in the coming years.
