Taking my cue from BMP at Christus Vincit, I thought I'd go through our hymnal,
Catholic Book of Worship III, published by the CCCB.
I will concentrate first on hymns, then on Mass Settings and then on the Psalm settings, and finally other acclamations.

What I would like to continue hearing.
1. Awake Awake: Fling off the Night [Deus Tuorum Militum]
