  • Hymns, Chants, Pieces for Trinity Sunday

    Just to keep some of you choir directors and organists busy: My church is back to public Masses and I need to play some music (with no singing) for this upcoming celebration of Trinity Sunday. So, suggestions for hymns, chants, and relatively easy pieces are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Holy, Holy, Holy. It's actually about the Trinity: God in 3 persons, blessed Trinity. I'm not sure how many non-musicians actually know that.

    There is another hymn I cannot bring to mind right now, but the first verse is about God the Father, the second is about God the Son, the third is about the Holy Spirit, and I think the fourth verse brings it all together. Funny how I can't remember the name.

      Okay, will do. Do you know what hymn ends with "praise the Holy Trinity, undivided unity, holy God, mighty God, God immortal we adore"? I have looked in our topical index, but there are only 4 things and I feel a lot of what I believe is Trinity music is excluded in the index.

      You can search the lyrics on hymnary.org, and probably find what you need.

      Michael, It's Sing Praise to Our Creator.

    The United Methodist Hymnal has no less than 17 tunes under the heading of 'Trinity' and at least that many more specifically for 'Trinity Sunday'. By the way, I put that string of hymn text verbatim on the Google search bar and got several hits. One of them is linked below. In addition to the "Holy, Holy, Holy" (NICEA) already mentioned by Michael I want to mention one you may not know: "Now the Silence" (NOW) might not be in your hymnal but it's worth looking for, works for Communion as well.

      I really love this hymn! Out of the 809 hymns in my book, it is the only one that is torn out. I also love this church, the organist, and, obviously, the organ. Thanks for the suggestions! Do you happen to have sheet music?

    A favourite old Irish hymn:
    https://hymnary.org/text/i_bind_unto_myself_today

    Or a plainsong one: O Trinity of blessed light (attached)

    And here (also attached) are the suggestions of the RSCM - the numbers are from UK hymn books and I don't know how many of the hymns would be familiar to you

      If they don't know them, they can't sing them so that's good! Thanks for the suggestions!

    Here is my playing (I apologize for the mistakes) this Trinity Sunday: https://youtu.be/nZPURw1q6lc?t=236
    Entrance: Holy, Holy, Holy by Noel Rawsthorne (3:50) by Freidrich Zachau
    Offertory: Come, Thou Almighty King (38:27)
    Communion: First part of Allein Gott in der Höh' sei Ehr by Freidrich Zachau (53:30)
    Also played (not in the video) was Lord, Who At Thy First Eucharist (for the first communicant), Sing Praise to Our Creator, and All Offertorio by Domenico Zipoli.
    You can also listen to the Gospel reading and celebrant Father Derek Lappe's homily on "The World's Problem" (11:55)
    Thank you and I hope you enjoy at least some music on this celebration of the Most Holy Trinity. - Philip

        Very good playing and sounds like a fine organ. Rawsthorne's last verses can't be beaten, but here's my take on "Holy, holy, holy" - not necessarily in the best of taste! (Only 5 singers this week.)

          Thank you and yes it is a fine organ (minus the corky pedals). I like your version of Nicea better although it was almost drowned out by the singers. Anyways, very nice!

          Thanks. The singers and organ are all on separate tracks, so the organ balance is deliberate! Although, I'm not necessarily against organists drowning singers - preferably not literally!

          I am not sure the pastor would approve of the drowning.

        Jolly good PD, I am doubly envious. First that my parents didn't stay in England when they left Jamaica and abandon the Anglican Church for United Methodists, and second, that I can't work up anything that sounds remotely that inspired without sheet music. Ah well ... I guess we all did some version of "Holy, holy, holy" last Sunday. Here is mine (my playing, not my arrangement). Only one mistake but it is a doozy. Starts at 0:00 to 1:35 and re-starts 32:46 to end. I might also direct your attention to 27:29 for "Now the Silence", a hymn that I find quite meaningful. The singer didn't like it, but says it has grown on her.

          Very nice. It sounds like you need an organ

          Yes, very nice. Our hymns are normally of the more traditional kind, which suits me. On third Sundays (in normal times) we have more "modern" songs. I'm not usually involved in that, so slink off to a more traditional church!

          At my old parish, they had something like worship music every month so I and my family would hop in our 15 passenger van and drive 45 minutes to the cathedral where my brother worked.
