   With over six hundred songs (Lieder) to his name, Franz Schubert was one fo the most prolific and gifted composers of the genre who ever lived.  His wonderful sense of beautiful melody pervades much of his music--symphonic, stage and opera, choral, chamber, and piano solos and duets.   
   A devout Catholic and former Vienna Boys Choir singer, he composed six Latin settings of the Mass as well as settings of the Salve Regina, Tantum Ergo, and numerous other works.
   Schubert's Antiphons for Palm Sunday, Opus 113, are a set of four easy liturgical motets for a cappella choir.  A singable English translation is provided with the original Latin.  The four Gregorian chant compositions for the same Sunday are also provided in Latin and English.
   Hosanna Filio David is sung for the blessing of the palms.  The responsory In Monte Oliveti can be sung between the Epistle reading and the Gospel, followed by Pueri Hebraeorum for the distribution of the palms and Cum Angelis for the procession of the palms.
