Alternatim is a practice dating from the early Christian church that utilizes two or more performing groups or contrasting styles of composition in the presentation of a liturgical text. In this setting, plain chant is contrasted with polyphony. Lee Gwozdz has edited this useful setting that combines the familiar chant dialogue for cantor and assembly with choral settings by Renaissance composer Hans Leo Hassler. This piece makes the rich heritage of the Church accessible, and can be easily incorporated into liturgy at your parish.
