Issues Etc on Athanasian Creed

Found on Issues, Etc.:

This week the Church celebrates Trinity Sunday. Christians around the world will confess the ancient Athanasian Creed.

Is the doctrine of the Trinity essential to the Christian faith? What does it mean to worship “One God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity”?

Prepare to celebrate Trinity Sunday by listening to our four-part series on “The Athanasian Creed” with Pastor Will Weedon.

    I listened to these yesterday and they are an excellent series. You will learn why the Athanasian Creed is so necessary, not only for when it was written, but also for today. And how it clarifies so many things. All taken right from God’s Word.

    Our adherence to this creed clearly separates us from false religions that have arisen in the past or will come in the future.

    Thanks to Pastors Weedon & Wilken for their work on this!

    God’s Blessings,

    Nice to have all of these together. Some years ago I was looking up the history of the Athanasian Creed and discovered that in the early days of its existence they used to chant it, as I recall. Does anybody have a clue what the chant tones were and how it was done?

    I just came upon this. It’s a year late, but here’s a setting of the Quicunque Vult in English:

    There’s also an Anglican setting by Best that is difficult to find, but can be found if you look.
