As we move towards the end of the Church year and during the month of the Holy Souls, the De Profundis has appeared regularly in the liturgy. Even today’s introit contains motifs from the Requiem introit and the De Profundis sung at the offertory had phrases from the Libera Me.
Here is a video of the offertory motet from this morning’s Missa Cantata, Si Iniquitates, verse two of the De Profundus, set by Samuel Wesley.

Before I converted to Catholicism I had the pleasure of being involved in music making in the Anglican tradition and in my last post I inherited a strong choral tradition and had a beautiful three manual Mirlees pipe organ to play.
Below is the liturgical music that will be performed at the Pontifical High Mass at the Throne offered by H.E. Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke on the 14th of September 2019- The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. This will be the 12th anniversary of the day on which Summorum Pontificum came into effect.
