Isang Bansa, Posted 09.01.29 #1
Hello onliners!

Are you familiar of the song, Isang Bansa?
Baka may kumakanta pa sa inyo ng song na ito?

Kasabayan niya yung One Bread, One Body, One People
1987 during the NATIONAL EUCHARISTIC YEAR.

Question: What part of the Mass ginamit ang song na ito?

Lyrics by: Timoteo Jose M. Ofrasio, SJ
Music by: Eduard P. Hontiveros, SJ.

Lyrics goes like this:
O kay ganda ng ating buhay
Napupuspos ng pagpapala
Ng sakramentong Mahiwaga
Kaloob ni Hesus sati'y gabay

O kay tamis ng pagsasama
Nagmumula sa pagkakaisa
Bumubukal sa pagsasalo
Sa iisang hapag ay dumalo

Purihin si Hesus
sa Sakramento
Purihin ng lahat ng tao
Purihin siya ng Pilipino
Sa pagkakaisa lingapin Mo.
"He who sings well.. prays twice!" - St. Augustine

Hmm...sa Diocese of Malolos, nilagay ito on three different places: sa Entrance, sa Communion and sa Recessional. (Btw, sa iba-ibang Missal yun hehehe)

Sa parish namin, nilagay sya noon sa Entrance Song, pero since wala namang copy ng songs ynug mga nagsisimba, minabuti na lang na gamitin sya as Recessional Song. I have yet to hear of a choir that used this as a Communion Song.

Titopao, thanks for the prompt reply.

I didnt know it is being used in recessional/entrance..
Actually narinig ko rin sa ibang choir na kinakanta ito during Presentation of Gifts.

Kaya medyo naco-confused ako.. although i would like to think na pinaka-safe sa Communion.

Still, i'm curious which part of the Mass do other choirs sing this song.

Although I'm not familiar with the tune, judging by the lyrics, Entrance, Offertory and Recessional, puede rin sa Communion. It depends sa readings din.

Si Father Eddie Honti nga pala ang composer nito kung hindi ako nagkakamali. Our copy was even mimeograph from San Jose Seminary
Maganda naman ang lyrics.Kinakanta din namin pag may patriotic celebrations.

Mimeograph? Pareho tayo ng Copy, kaya lang sa sobrang luma, pina photocopy ko na... Legal size pa nga ang paper e...

@niknok, tama ka safe sya for communion, dun din namin madalas kantahin ito.

Pwede ring Entrance yan pag Maundy Thursday.

@ Alex and nlim:

Kung ganoon, pare-pareho pala tayo ng mga kopya.. Mimeograph din sa akin eh, legal size. 2 pages. Medyo malabo na nga.

I remember i encoded the score sa Noteworthy composer para ma-preserve ang ganda kasi ng arrangement eh. Di ko lang alam kung san ko na-save.


I'm still curious if kung saang part ng mass specifically na-compose ni Fr. Honti itong song na ito..
