Propers in Latin are identical in both Ordinary and Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
The sung Mass on Palm Sunday has an ancient and rich history. First, a procession of the Palms, outdoors, precedes the arrival in the church. There, the cantors welcome the congregation and priest, who knock three times at the gates, and an alternate singing of the Gloria Laus hymn between the cantors (inside) and the congregation (outside). The antiphons of the Mass are poignantly sung as if they were our Christ’s own words while suffering in the Passion.
