On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

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.
