Music for Sprinkling Rite

Post by Andreas »

Has anyone composed music for any of the Sprinkling Rite antiphons? I mean the English versions.
1. Sprinkle me with hyssop, O Lord, and I shall be cleansed;
wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. (Ps 50.9)
2. I will pour clean water upon you, and you will be made clean of all your impurities,
and I shall give you a new spirit, says the Lord. (Ez. 36.25-26)
3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy has given us new birth into a living hope;
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, into an inheritance that will not perish, preserved for us in heaven,
for the salvation to be revealed in the last time. (cf 1 Pet. 1.3-5)
During Eastertime
1. I saw water flowing from the Temple, from its right side, Alleluia
and all to whom this water came were saved and shall say Alleluia, Alleluia. (cf Ez 47.1,9)
2. On the day of my Resurrection, says the Lord, Alleluia
I will gather the nations and assemble the kingdoms and I shall pour clean water over you, Alleluia (cf Wis. 3:8, Ez 36.25)
3. You springs and all that move in the waters sing a hymn to God, Alleluia (cf Dan 3.77,79)
4. You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation;
proclaim the mighty deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light, Alleluia (1.Pet. 2.9)
5. From your side O Christ bursts forth a spring of water, by which the squalor of the world is washed away and life is made new again, Alleluia

I saw water flowing from the temple has been set by Bob Hurd and Randall deBruyn (both from OCP). A different version of this text with an ostinato refrain is Cyprian Consiglio's Streams of Living Water, also from OCP.
