    Requesting feedback on my adaptation of the Salvator mundi antiphon to fit the text of the present-day Memorial Acclamation C and hopefully complement the setting of MA A with a chant more authentic than that currently provided by ICEL.

  • Observations:

    It's clearly borrowed from an existing chant. (This is a good thing).
    It looks as if you intend there to be 3 points at which congregations could join the singing: at the beginning, at qui per Crucem, and at Liberasti.

    I would recommend regrouping the syllables/notes at -ra-sti. Put a- g on -"ra", and the e-f#-e on "sti". This gives the melody enough time to come gently into the cadence.

    Thanks, Chris. This is the chant which I have adapted, for reference: https://gregobase.selapa.net/chant.php?id=1335

    If I remember right, Solesmes has also provided a setting of the English in their revised edition of Gregorian Missal.
