"There is a lack of that kind of organization which favors mature judgment. Move on, move on, get it out. Schemata are multiplied without ever arriving at a considered form. The system of discussion is bad … Often the schemata arrive just before the discussions. Sometimes, and in important matters, such as the new anaphoras, the schema was distributed the evening before the discussion was to take place … Father Bugnini has only one interest: press ahead and finish."
— Cardinal Antonelli (Peritus during the Second Vatican Council)

A preview of Modal Responsorial Psalms and Gospel Acclamations: Round-note SATB Edition
published 29 April 2013 by Aristotle A. Esguerra

In the near future Corpus Christi Watershed will be releasing the round-note SATB edition of Modal Responsorial Psalms and Gospel Acclamations. (Many of these psalm antiphons have been included in The Vatican II Hymnal.) This edition will contain all of the settings of the square-note edition in easily-learned SATB harmonies.

The preview below contains all of the Responsorial Psalms that are sung during the Simple and Extended Vigils of Pentecost. It serves as an example of both the stepwise-dominant style of the ATB lines (a practical consideration for choirs new to part-singing) and the typesetting used for this edition. Download the PDF.
