Palm Sunday in Georgia

Music selections this year:

All Glory, Laud and Honor
Hosanna Filio David (blessing of palms), in English
Simple Propers Offertory antiphon
O Sacrament Most Holy (Communion)
O Sacred Head Surrounded (Recessional)

The parish was unfamiliar with Hosanna Filio David... but I hope to establish this as one song that is used every year. I have the Latin version of it memorized, I like it so much.

Its melody sounds like something the people of Jerusalem would have sung, perhaps a well-known psalm sung at the synagogues.
