Description: This is a contrafactum of the Gradual and Alleluia for St. Peter and St. Paul by H.B. Collins, that was written for the Birmingham Oratory choir in June 1902. I have reworked this as a Gradual and Alleluia for the third Sunday in Advent. It can be split into two pieces for performance in the Novus Ordo Missae.

Qui sedes, Domine, super Cherubim, excita potentiam tuam, et veni.
Qui regis Israel intende: qui deducis velut ovem Joseph.

Excita, Domine, potentiam tuam,
et veni, ut salvos facias nos.
