, provides musical settings for this anthem (S 379, S 382). The 1979 BCP is the first Prayer Book to use the Trisagion as an alternative for the Kyrie at the opening of the eucharistic rite (p. 356). The Kyrie or Trisagion are normally used at the opening of the rite in Advent and Lent, when the Gloria in excelsis is not used. They may be used on other occasions. The Trisagion may be sung or said three times, or antiphonally (BCP, p. 406). Musical settings for the Trisagion are provided by The Hymnal 1982 (S 99-S 102), and the Accompaniment Edition, Vol. 1 (S 360). The Trisagion is also used at the beginning of the Reconciliation of a Penitent, Form Two (BCP, p. 449). The BOS recommends use of the Trisagion in the Way of the Cross as the procession goes from station to station. The Trisagion may also be used to conclude each station in the Way of the Cross.
