Where can one find the Pange Lingua setting to Picardy tune?

Ritual Song has a version that I think is something like "Sing My Tongue..." that is definitely set to Picardy!

Well, I'm definitely impressed. This year I will be happy if my little choir and I finish standing upright. However, they didn't flinch at the Hosanna filio David antiphon for Palm Sunday or some Latin during the Procession to the Altar of Repose. Neither did they whine at the Easter sequence. So, progress is being made by all.

However, Cantor, you hve just heaps of lovely things. Wishing you the best in the coming week.
