Whole set of responsorial psalm settings available
  • What feels like it was eons and eons ago, I wrote a set of responsorial psalm settings for OF Masses at first one and then the second school where I taught. They're designed to be sung without any organ accompaniment (and it goes without saying that no other instruments were foreseen.

    I think I still have them lying around in a file folder, hardcopy, but I don't (yet) have them electronically. Would anyone who works in a school be interested in my making them available?

    These are daily Mass + Sundays?
  • If I recall correctly, I put them together over a series of school/parish positions, dating back nearly 30 years. I think they included both Sundays and mid-week Mass stuff, but I'll get back to you on that when I'm home and can pull the file to the computer. I don't THINK it covers every Sunday, or every feast day, if that's what you're asking. It might be tomorrow (Tuesday) before I can get to it, but your interest will spur me to act.
  • Here's a list of what's in the file folder:

    Mostly, obvious psalm tones.

    Pericopes, unless otherwise indicated:

    Ps 24 (for Advent)
    Ps 18 (no notation on the page as to use, but the response is "The Lord is kind and merciful")

    Ps 112 (for a wedding; at the bottom of the page is scribbled "with apologies to Franz Schubert", because the melody of the response is cribbed from his famous Ave Maria).

    Ps 129 (for Laetare Sunday)
