A second class of tunes—which can also be said with certainty to fall under the profane—are those which are written in the style of secular songs and which, if heard without the words, would be recognized only as such. In these, as a rule, the devotional gives way to the sentimental, cheerfulness to levity and oftentimes vulgarity, while not even an attempt is made to give a serious or dignified musical expression to the sentiments embodied in the words of the hymn. Not the least objectionable feature of some of these tunes is a jingling piano accompaniment quite unsuited to the church organ.

245 Agnus HE COMPLETE 1936 “Parochial Hymnal” by the indomitable Fr. Carlo Rossini (291 pages) can be downloaded from the website dedicated to the St. Jean de Brébeuf Hymnal, a pew book still forthcoming. Inside that book, you’ll find a simple accompaniment for Credo III:

For myself, I prefer the version posted on the St. Antoine Daniel website. As usual, the Nova Organi Harmonia version is also worth downloading.
