  • Immaculate Mary, Salve Regina, and Holy God we Praise Thy Name to name a few. I know there are more out there but that's all I can think of for now.

    Grosser Gott appears in a lot of Protestant hymnals.

    The only hymns of Catholic origin that Protestants do not use are the Marian hymns.

    I don't think that there is a single hymnal with 4-part setting that includes only Catholic hymns.

    Also interesting to note that a lot of old German hymns (the ones not based on secular songs) are actually based on pre-Reformation tunes.

  • They don't have a pipe organ, but I like these hymns.  All of their CDs are good, but that one is my favorite and many (most?) of their recordings have orchestra accompaniment.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

    Holy God We Praise Thy Name is in the Episcopal, Lutheran, and Methodist hymnals.
    Stir up within Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the Spirit with which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, was filled, when he laid down his life for his sheep: so that, through his intercession, we too may be moved and strengthen by the same Spir

    Nope.  Protestants sing that too, but in English.
