We do our hymns during circle time, just after read-aloud, while I’m sitting on the couch. That means I’m not close to the desktop or any CD player, so the most convenient thing for me is to play them on the chromebook or other device. The first place to go for the hymns is Catholic Chant. He has them laid out by school year, especially tailored to our needs. However, not every hymn has a sound file. For that, I’ve created a youtube playlist that you are welcome to use. Whenever you find a hole on that site, head to my list and find the missing version. Hope that helps!
Below is the list of hymns not found on the Catholic Chants site. The italicized two, I couldn’t find on youtube with the right tune.
- Pange Lingua (English: Sing, My Tongue)
- Pange Lingua (Latin)
- Jesus, Lord, Be Thou Mine Own
- Vexilla Regis (English: The Royal Banners)
- Vexilla Regis (Latin)
- Resonet in Laudibus (English: Who is He in Yonder Stall?)
- Resonet in Laudibus (Latin)
- Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent
- Divinum Mysterium (English: Of the Father’s Love Begotten)
- Divinum Mysterium (Latin)
*Note Creator Alme Siderum is repeated from Kindergarten. Look up in Kindergarten on Catholic chant for the sound file.
