Lent
1

The plainsong responsory Hear us, O Lord (Attende Domine) is traditionally sung during Lent and known in the English liturgy as the ‘Lent Prose’. It is to be found in the Liber usualis (in its Latin version) as one of the cantus varii, and appears in an English translation in the English Hymnal (1906), having been adapted by W J Birkbeck.

from notes by William McVicker 1997
