Ideas for use
Consider a lower key to assist congregation, especially if it is sitting down. This might be appropriate if slected verses are being used as sung responses to prayers e.g. of intercession.
From the end of verse 1 onwards, the cantor(s) sing a new phrase that is then picked up as the first line of the following verse. Note that two options are given for the cantor’s phrase – one higher, one lower. The two options are not intended to be sung together.
