Father Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923) called this “perhaps the greatest of all hymns.”
Jean de Brebeuf Hymnal
I composed this organ accompaniment yesterday, looking ahead towards Eastertide.
Have you heard of the “People’s Mass Book,” published by Omer Westendorf in 1964?
There’s something comforting about the Brébeuf hymnal translations, since they were created by Catholic priests.
I wish Epiphany lasted forever—the hymns are rich with theology!
