The singing of hymns has always been a central part of my spirituality. St. Augustine of Hippo, the great doctor of the Church, is famous for having said that “to sing is to pray twice.” I found this to be profoundly true in my own walk with the Lord, and so this blog is dedicated to hymnody. Here I will keep a repository of my favorite hymns, as well as some hymns of my own composition. Moreover, if a hymn originated in a different language, I will do my best to provide the original text alongside the English hymn translated from it.

This blog is lovingly consecrated to the greater glory of Almighty God through Our Lord Jesus Christ and placed under the patronage of St. Cecilia, St. Gregory the Great and, of course, St. Augustine of Hippo.

I pray this blog is a blessing to all who come here. Pax et bonum!

    Hello, I am an avid fan of this webpage. I am looking for any resources that have the pre-Trent sequences which were suppressed. These lost sequences are very difficult to find and I am looking for any resource that has all of them listed. Any help would be appreciated!

      Hi Ron, that’s actually one of the projects I have lined up for the page eventually. One of the problems is that the liturgy was not standardized prior to Trent, so there is a great deal of variation from region to region. Google Books is an excellent resource. Try looking up sequences from the Sarum Missal – that would hold a great deal of the sequences from the medieval Church in England

    Who are you? What religion are you? What is your background?

    • Noah says:

      I’m sorry, I don’t answer personal inquiries on this site. As to my religion, it should be apparent from the site and from the above “About” section that I am Catholic.
