“If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus, and the Agnus Dei…that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum Ergo, the Te Deum, and the Litanies sung by the people over any piece of polyphony.”
— Giuseppe Cardinal Sarto, Letter to Msgr. Callegari (1897)

Palm Sunday Passion Booklet - Free Download
published 12 March 2014 by Andrew R. Motyka

N THE PAST, our gracious hosts here at Corpus Christi Watershed have shared with us some PDFs of Palm Sunday Passion booklets. When looking through my files this year, though, I found that I was missing the Passion for Palm Sunday, Year A (this year).

When I searched this site and asked Jeff Ostrowski, he let me know that that was the one booklet that was never done, so I decided to whip one up. Thanks to the text input by a forum commenter “CGM” on the Musica Sacra Forums, formatting this was fairly easy.

Please download and use this free booklet of the Saint Matthew Passion.

The setup is very easy: simply print the pages, in order, front-to-back on landscape layout 8.5 × 11 paper. Staple it in the middle and fold it in half, and you have an easy-to-use Passion booklet for this year’s St. Matthew Passion. Enjoy.
