16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, SEP Practice Videos

These chants from the Simple English Propers are now available for this Sunday. I'm enraptured by their structural similarity to the same propers in the Gregorian. The introit is exuberant, the offertory is contemplative, and the communion is...so Mode IV, which always suggests to my ear deep mystery (are all chants about burning things set in Mode IV?).
