OR MANY YEARS, my parish has sung Credo IV and Credo I. When we do Credo IV, we use the NOH organ accompaniment, sometimes adding a counter-melody in the Bass. When we sing Credo I, we mix polyphonic snippets by Father Machaut. But we have so many Solemn Masses—a minimum two each Sunday—that we sometimes need another Credo to sing. Over the years, I have sung Credo III, Credo V, Credo VI, and (very rarely) Credo II. One Credo which I like very much is Credo VII, from the 13th century:
Credo VII can be printed from this file:
The only booklet I know which offers a clean, crisp printing of Credo VII is the Saint Antoine Daniel Kyriale, which costs $5.99 and contains the complete KYRIALE, as well as the “Cantus ad libitum” (1908 printing):
Over the last 120 years, many printers have started to “mix and match” the KYRIALE, which I find confusing. That’s one reason I like the Saint Antoine Daniel Kyriale.
