The rest of this post deals with the ending of the Communion antiphon.
The Communion antiphon (“Visiónem quam vidístis”) is identical to a Magnificat antiphon, except for one note:
At first, it seemed a typo, since the Vatican Edition of the Antiphonale appeared several years after the Graduale.
Further examination, however, shows that some manuscripts only have the punctum:

Dom Mocquereau’s 1903 Liber Usualis has a podatus:
Abbot Pothier’s 1891 Liber Gradualis has a punctum:
Pothier’s 1896 Liber Usualis has the punctum for the Magnificat antiphon:

Using the search function to quickly find “visionem” in the NOH shows how the composers provided a completely different harmonization both times:
For the record, the NOH has a typo in the Communion antiphon:
Never have I encountered so many typos in one feast! Yesterday, I spoke of a typo in the Introit that desperately needed correction.
