Hey guys, I kinda need some homework help. According to my homework assignment, I have to make a memoir where I write about something about my life and then have song lyrics to accompany it. For example, if a person has financial issues, their house is about to be foreclosed, they just got laid off, then a page in the memoir can be about this person’s financial struggle and the song lyrics that can accompany could be Rise Up by Matt Maher (Great song by the way. You can find it on Vevo). I could use copyrighted songs for my assignment and use the fair use defense, but I’d rather not. However, since I’m open about my faith, I’d like to use Gregorian Chant or Public Domain Liturgical Hymns. These are the topics I have to write about:
- Someone who I admire or influenced me.
- An event that gave me a strong impression.
- An object that is significant to me.
- A place I enjoy, treasure, or appreciate.
- My personality
This is my partially completed proposed list.
The person that I admire is Pope Francis. Proposed songs: Salve Regina the chant (After all, he intends to consecrate the world to Mary), Hail, Holy Queen (ocp.org/products/90787)
2)An event (undecided)
The object is the Rosary. Proposed Songs: Schubert’s Ave Maria, Immaculate Mary (ocp.org/compositions/239)
The place I treasure is the church. Proposed songs: Pange Lingua (ocp.org/compositions/302#tab:sheetmusic) (ocp.org/compositions/64910Gloria), Memorial Acclamations (OCP has ICEL chants that I can print for free. ocp.org/newmasssettings/resources), Tantum Ergo (ocp.org/compositions/64477#tab:sheetmusic)
My personality. I’m open with my faith. Proposed song: Be Thou my Vision (ocp.org/compositions/66146)
I’d like some song or chant suggestions so I can have more choices to decide a song.
By the way, are there any public domain hymns of St Patrick’s breastplate prayer (ewtn.com/devotionals/prayers/patrick.htm) or St Francis’s Make me a Channel Prayer (ewtn.com/devotionals/prayers/francis2.htm). Also, is there an Ave Maria chant out there?
And guys, please don’t make this a thread about “Screw OCP! What’s wrong with you for supporting it!? Is OCP really that bad, or are you that bad?” I don’t want this thread closed, and I don’t want sins committed. Besides, the homework is due August 21, 2013.

I encourage you to read the rubric.
This is a tentative list, so I may pull some switcheroos.
