Saturday Song – Litany of the Saints

All Saints Day is coming up on Tuesday, November 1, so I am posting this video of the Litany of the Saints by John Becker. I love this version so much.

Of course I love the saints – the whole notion of a Communio sanctorum, that we as Catholic Christians treasure. So for our Saturday song this week, The Litany of the Saints.

  1. My dear Fran, when I was an organist choir master, we sang this every All Saints Day. It is the very best musical setting of the Litany of the Saints written in the past century. “All you holy men and women, pray for us.” I always had the congregation sing that part. It was the sung during the procession, for this was a rather high Episcopal Church, and the congregation always said how moved they were by it. I do not like the addition of the drums, but you can’t destroy the sheer glory of this setting. Thank you, Fran, my Blessed Friend.
