Father, our newly founded schola at our Newman Center chanted the Reproaches for Good Friday. We sang the Popule meus antiphon and Trisagion in Latin/Greek and the reproaches themselves in English to a Psalm tone in the same mode as the antiphons (I). We received many compliments on how moving and appropriate the music was. The regular choir (a folk-type group) has asked us about chanting the Mass parts. Our chaplain, who favors chanting in Latin when possible, is also pleased.

Our choir did the reproaches, for the first time in anyones memory, at our parish yesterday, and the response was extraordinary.
Next year maybe the people will sing it too, God willing?
