Psalm-toned Latin canticles for Easter Vigil (OF)?
  • Is there an existing source for all seven of the canticles for Easter Vigil in Latin set to psalm tones? I've found a few sources with three of the canticles, but haven't been able to locate a source with all seven. Thanks.

    Of the texts after the seven OT lections of the Easter Vigil, three are canticles which can be found in the Graduale Simplex. The other four are psalms, which the GS seems - either to assume you can find for yourself, or omits because they could not find simplified ancient settings.
    I don't know whether this helps - the following antiphons can be found set to psalm tones, among the verses of their psalms. Qui confidunt GS p99. Laudate Dominum, omnes gentes GS p284. But Sicut cervus desiderat has undergone a transformation, it appears, and is now Quemadmodum desiderat cervus. And Iubilate Domino is from Ps99, which does not appear in GS.
