Why do we never sing “De Spiritu Sancto” (St. Athenogenes) in our churches? There are a dozen translations in English verse. Where could anyone find a better evening hymn than this, coming right down from the catacombs? Our hymnbooks know nothing of such a treasure as this, and give us pages of poor sentiment in doggerel lines by some tenth-rate modern versifier.
— Rev’d Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

Simple English Propers (Divine Mercy Sunday)
published 1 April 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

HAT WOULD THE Simple English Propers sound like harmonized as if they were Chabanel Psalms? In other words, done according to the “Flor Peeters” method of chant accompaniment? Readers will recall that Flor Peeters and his associates at the Lemmens Institute in Belgium (Msgr. Jules Van Nuffel, Msgr. Jules Vyverman, Marinus de Jong, Gustaaf Nees, Henri Durieux, and Edgard de Laet) were the world’s leaders in creating beautiful, modal, Gregorian accompaniments.
