Eucharistic Prayers

About Through-Singing the Eucharistic Prayer
Bill Gartig

Historians of liturgy tell us that long ago it was not just the Sursum corda and the Conclusion of the Great Thanksgiving that were chanted by the priest. The entire prayer, from start to finish, was chanted. A through-setting of Prayer C has long been available in the organist’s edition of the Hymnal 1982, and these settings of mine are meant to do the same for Prayers A and B.

I have now also posted my revised through-setting (in Gregorian notation) of Eucharistic Prayer D in Mozarabic chant. This difficult-to-sing setting is only for the most vocally able and ambitious.
