“Te, Ioseph celebrent”, a hymn in honor of the Terror of Demons

Back in 2009 I made a PODCAzT – TEN YEARS AGO?!? – about the hymn sung in the Liturgy of Hours in honor of St. Joseph.   That post eventually was augmented with photos sent by The Great Roman™ of a terrific procession in honor of St. Joseph in the streets of Rome.  HERE  There are also photos from the now somewhat lamented Holy Innocents in NYC, where good things took place.

And from the Great Roman…

I drilled into a beautiful Gregorian chant hymn to St. Joseph in the Liturgia Horarum, the Liturgy of the Hours.

The hymn is Te, Ioseph celebrent and it is in the Liber Hymnarius for 1st and 2nd Vespers for the Feast of St. Joseph.

Also of note, Fr. Hunwicke has comments about his hymn at his fine blog, HERE.

Also we listened to an indulgenced prayer written by Pope Leo XIII, Ad Te Ioseph.

Finally, we hear St. Bernardine of Siena (+1444) preach on our Patron of the Universal Church who is Patron of the dying.

    Thank you for an informative and enjoyable post (music and poetry, my two favorite things.) You have a lovely voice–both speaking and singing. I think you ought to sing examples more often.
