The Vatican Gradual cheered our hearts by restoring the authentic form of the hymns therein. But there are very few hymns in the Gradual. We looked forward to the continuation of the same work, where it was so much more needed, in the Vesperal, and then in the new Breviary. Alas, the movement, for the present, has stopped. The new Vesperal and then the Breviary contain Urban VIII’s versions. So at present we have the odd situation that in the Gradual the old form of the hymns is restored; but when the same hymn (for instance “Vexilia regis”) comes again in the Vesperal, we must sing the seventeenth-century mangling.
— Adrian Fortescue (25 March 1916)

Accompaniment: “Credo III” (Parochial Hymnal)
published 10 April 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

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.
