Trinity Sunday (Year C, 2013)

Sunday, 26 May 2013

Kyrie Kyrie Eleison from Missa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Gloria Missa Ubi Caritas
Psalm Ps 8 (Sebastian Wolff)
Gospel Acclamation Sing a New Song (John Bell)

Communion God beyond all names (John Bell) & Benedicta sit sancta Trinitas (chant)
Postcommunion Tibi Laus (Orlande de Lassus, 1532-1594)
Recessional Father, Lord of all creation

In the short motet Tibi Laus, Lassus sets the central invocation of the Angelic Trisagion, a litany of devotions to the Trinity:

To you praise,
to you glory,
to you thanksgiving forever,
O blessed Trinity.

CPDL calls the prayer a matins responsory for Trinity Sunday, but I can’t find it in my copy of the Liber Usualis. We shaped the piece by beginning with joy and ending with warm affection.

Sabine von Hünerbein directed us in Tchaikovsky’s setting of the Cherubic Hymn from the Orthodox liturgy, in W.G. Rothery’s freely amplified translation, which emphasises the Trinitarian element in the original.
