Ash Wednesday: Domine, non secundum

Domine, non secundum is the Tract for Ash Wednesday (and is also listed as being used at Ember Friday in that week).

The Brazilian Benedictines have recorded the plainchant of the tract, but I couldn't find it anywhere else.  Here's their mp3, and here are the words in Latin, with translation to English from CPDL:
Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, quæ fecimus nos: neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis.
Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum patrum nostrorum, cito anticipent nos misericordiæ tuæ, quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.
Adiuvanos, Deus salutaris nostri, propter gloriam nominis tui et liberanos; et propitius esto peccatis nostris propter nomen tuum.

Lord, do not repay us according to our sins or our iniquities.
Lord, do not hold our old sins against us;
may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need.
Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name;
Lord, deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.

 Below is the full chant score.

Here's a lovely setting of this text from Spain's Juan de Anchieta:

And here, the Warsaw Boys Choir sings Cesar Franck's setting:
