The representative Protestant collection, entitled “Hymns, Ancient and Modern”—in substance a compromise between the various sections of conflicting religious thought in the Establishment—is a typical instance. That collection is indebted to Catholic writers for a large fractional part of its contents. If the hymns be estimated which are taken from Catholic sources, directly or imitatively, the greater and more valuable part of its contents owes its origin to the Church.
— Orby Shipley (1884)

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.
