When you consider that the greatest hymns ever written—the plainchant hymns—are pushing the age of eight hundred and that the noble chorale hymn tunes of Bach date from the early eighteenth century, then what is the significance of the word “old” applied to “Mother at Thy Feet Is Kneeling”? Most of the old St. Basil hymns date from the Victorian era, particularly the 1870s and 1880s.
— Paul Hume (1956)

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:
