Gregorian Chant: The Eternal Song

By Cantor A Willing Spirit While chanting Psalm 51 this morning at Lauds, this phrase caught my attention: #quot;…et spiritu promptissimo confirma me#quot; (…and give me a willing spirit). What struck me was the word translated as #quot;willing#quot; is #quot;promptissimo,#quot; and from which is derived our word #quot;prompt.#quot; I ran home and looked up the Latin translation which reads #quot;The most eager.#quot; So, that phrase from Psalm 51 could be read in English as #quot;…and give me the most eager spirit.#quot; [ 119 more words. ]
