Today’s readings spoke of forgiveness, and this was reflected in our entrance, offertory and recessional hymns. We also had Chris O’Hara’s hope-filled setting of the Communion antiphon text.
Last time we sang the well-known setting of the antiphon in praise of the Blessed Sacrament credited to Allegri, I wondered aloud where it had come from. The answer would appear to be an adaptation by Richard Terry, published in Downside Motets, vol. 1 no. 9 of 1904. An adaptation of what, I still don’t know. Anyone able to shed any light?
