|Meeting Christ in the Liturgy|
Instruction of the Roman Missal
IntraText CT - Text
As a further alternative to (1) the singing of the psalm with its response in the «Lectionary,» (2) the gradual in the «Roman Gradual», or (3) the responsorial or alleluia psalm in the «Simple Gradual», the Conference of Bishops has approved the use of other collections of psalms and antiphons in English, as supplements to the «Simple Gradual», including psalms arranged in responsorial form, metrical and similar versions of psalms, provided they are used in accordance with the principles of the «Simple Gradual» and are selected in harmony with the liturgical season, feast or occasion (decree confirmed by the Consilium for the Implementation of the Constitution on the Liturgy, December 17, 1968).
For further information concerning the use of the chants between the readings, see the Foreword and the Introduction (VIII) to the «Lectionary for Mass» (New York, Collegeville, Minn., 1970). In particular, see the common texts for sung responsorial psalms (nos. 174 - 175), which may be used in place of the text corresponding to the reading whenever the psalm is sung.
If the psalm after the reading is not sung it is recited. The alleluia or the verse before the Gospel may be omitted if not sung (see no. 39 of the «General Instruction»). The people stand for the singing of the alleluia before the Gospel (see no. 21 of the «General Instruction»).
