Missa Pange Lingua, Josquin

To restore a suitably chanted ordinary to Mass is a high enough goal for most parishes, but we should never lose sight of the possibilities for the vast repertoire of polyphonic Masses as well. In an ideal world, every parish would have a choir with a solid number of settings like this to sing.

This from Saint Clement's Church, Philadelphia (Anglo-Catholic), is fantastic in an EF context but it can be done in the OF as well.
