"Since such is the nature of man that he cannot easily without external means be raised to meditation on divine things, on that account holy Mother Church has instituted certain rites, namely that certain things be pronounced in a subdued tone (canon and words of consecration) and others in a louder tone; she has likewise made use of ceremonies such as mystical blessings, lights, incense, vestments, and many other things of this kind in accordance with apostolic teaching and tradition, whereby both the majesty of so great a sacrifice might be commended, and the minds of the faithful excited by these visible signs of religion and piety to the contemplation of the most sublime matters which are hidden in this sacrifice."
— Council of Trent (Session XXII)

Introit • Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity • Free Download
published 8 June 2017 by Richard J. Clark

AST YEAR, I was honored to have been commissioned a new setting of the Introit for the first Mass of Fr. Patrick Fiorillo. This took place on the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity. The setting is in English and composed for SATB, organ, schola/cantor, and congregation.

You may read about his first Mass here—a true model of singing the Mass in the Novus Ordo. You may download the score and listen to a live recording of the Introit from Rev. Fiorillo’s first Mass:
