Favorite hymns?
« on: July 22, 2017, 09:41:24 AM »
Not sure if I'm reinventing the thread wheel here, but I thought it would be nice for folks to post their favorite hymns. Not chants. Hymns.

Here is my #1, at least for the last few years:
Farrant's "Lord, For Thy Tender Mercy's Sake"
"And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we are ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?" - St. Maximilian Kolbe

I love a lot of the ones from Richard Proulx's Cathedral Singers series. I'll see if I can find some to post.

"Mary, Immaculate Star of the Morning."


"Veni Jesu, Amor Mi"


"Sleep, Holy Babe"


"Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming"

They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled

Sweet the wood, sweet the nails, sweet the load that hangs on thee: thou only wast worthy to bear up the King and Lord of heaven.

I really like O blest creator of the light (sorry no words in this video)


One of my favorites while at the Toronto Oratory!

The Byzantine polyphonic chanted St. Michael prayer our choir does after every Mass. It so dramatic, no organ, and inspiring!
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.

Needless to say our choir doesn't sound quite as good.

I'm not sure if it's my favorite, but I do like "All Glory, Laud and Honor."  I typically only get to hear it once a year, on Palm Sunday.

Oops. This is a type of chant.
