Music for Passion Sunday

At this time of quarantine and isolation, many will be unable to attend Holy Mass and so I have compiled a playlist of music for Mass on Passion Sunday.

The propers at Gregorian, the ordinary of the Mass is the setting for five voices by William Byrd.

The Vexilla Regis is the vespers hymn for Passiontide and it’s English translation is included too. The motet is by Bryd’s contemporary and friend, Thomas Tallis: Salvator Mundi, and links in well with the epistle.
