“Since the ability of Francisco Guerrero is now abundantly known to all […] he shall henceforth act as master of the boys so long as: ( 1) he must teach them to read, write, and to sing the responsories, versicles, antiphons, lessons, and kalends, and other parts of divine service; (2) he shall teach them plainchant, harmony, and counterpoint, his instruction in counterpoint to include both the art of adding a melody to a plainsong and to an already existing piece of polyphonic music; (3) he shall always clothe them decently and properly, see that they wear good shoes, and ensure that their beds are kept perfectly clean; (4) he shall feed them the same food that he himself eats and never take money from them for anything having to do with their services in church or their musical instruction…” [cont’d]

Free Organ Accompaniment for the Sprinkling Rite
published 7 September 2011 by Jeff Ostrowski

I always find it difficult to get the TIMING just right during the Sprinkling Rite.

Therefore, in the Vatican II Hymnal, I added verses that can be used if needed:

I saw water flowing from the Temple, from its right-hand side, alleluia:
and all to whom this water came were saved and shall say: Alleluia, alleluia.

Give praise to the Lord, for he is good : for his mercy endures for ever.
Let Israel now say, that he is good: that his mercy endures for ever.
Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endures for ever.
Let them that fear the Lord now say, that his mercy endures for ever.
The Lord is my helper: I will not fear what man can do unto me.
The Lord is my helper: and I will look over my enemies.
It is good to confide in the Lord, rather than to have confidence in man.
It is good to trust in the Lord, rather than to trust in princes.
The Lord is my strength and my praise: and he has become my salvation.
The voice of rejoicing and of salvation is in the tabernacles of the just.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
