I think the chants at the Requiem Mass and the Office of the Dead are my favorites in the Gregorian repertoire. My favorite of all is the antiphon Ego Sum Resurrectio et Vita ("I am the Resurrection and Life"), sung with the Canticle of Zechariah at Lauds of the Dead and by the priest at the graveside.
Oh, I wasn't aware it's orignally Gregorian chant! I hear it every year in Polish at the ecumenical (Orthodox and Roman Catholic) procession on the cemetery belonging to my parish. In Polish (however, I hear it chanted by better cantors) sounds it in such way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRyQjL3z2kc

Your link doesn't work for me, but I've found this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvOidZcaGh0
Paschal alleluia with the hymn we're talking about. What a coincidence - today is the 1st anniversary of the funeral of fr. Zbigniew that I liked so much but I couldn't be because of the interview with the Antiochian patriarch.

Here is a question for the Orthodox posters:

If you could take one hymn or chant from the treasury of Latin Catholic sacred music and use it in the Divine Liturgy at your church ... which one would it be?
We have all of it in the Western Rite.

I wish the Western Rites would make more use of O Gladsome Light and integrate Ho Monoges into the liturgy, perhaps after the Credo, as a bulwark against Christological error.

It's probably better overall for the Western Rites to maintain their integrity and minimize Byzantinizations. Dropping references to the Filioque is one thing, but altering the structure of the Western services seems unnecessary.

Except some tropariosn that have been used in the West, like of the Nativity of the Theotokos or Pascha.

Te Deum
Salve Regina
Caedmon's hymn
Tota pulchra es

Yes, but most of those were taken into the Western rites in the first millennium – I figure they're pretty "naturalized" by now!

Anyone interested in Old Roman Chant?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdka1WN1c8c

That's the way the Church of Rome worshipped before the invention of the Gregorian Chant. Similar but quite different. Sounds more eastern ... Wonderful!

Great! It does sound more similar to the East than Gregorian chant does... But I still find in unmistakably Western. All the contemplativeness and blues.  :p

the English language version of the original 10th century Mozarabic hymn “Attende Domine”, which is especially appropriate for Lent.

Gregorian Chant is so soothing isn't it. It has been called, figuratively, the language and hymn of the Angels singing to God and Mary. Great is the expressive sacrality of Latin chant set in the Gregorian tone.

Traditional Latin Catholic Mass of the Angels below. Kyrie Eleison from the Greek to begin with. Gloria in Excelsis Deo follows.

Oops. Sorry about that. It was in Latin, but not a song. My mistake.

Here's a Catholic Song in English, the Divine Mercy Chaplet:
