NOTES FROM THE PSALITE SAPIENTER:
111. At the solemn evening Mass, the organ may be played from the beginning of Mass until the Gloria.
112. Gloria Patri is omitted from the Introit, but additional verses of Psalm 66 may be added, after each of which the antiphon is repeated (these verses are given in the Liber Usualis on pages 667–668).
113. After the Kyrie, the celebrant intones the Gloria. Then the organ may be played in a solemn, festive manner, and the church bells are rung. When the organ has finished, the Gloria is continued with Et in terra pax. The organ may be used during the singing of the Gloria, if it be necessary to support the singing. However, when the singing has concluded, the organ must cease, and must remain absolutely silent until the Gloria of the Easter Vigil. It may not be played in the interval for any reason, even outside the liturgy.
114. After the Epistle, there is a Gradual, but no Tract. The Washing of Feet, if it take place, follows the Gospel (and sermon). There are several chants appointed to be sung during this function. In the first seven chants, the antiphon is intoned by the cantor(s), and concluded by the full choir. Then the cantor(s) sing the verse(s), after which the full choir repeat the antiphon. The eighth chant, Ubi caritas, must never be omitted; if necessary, some of the first seven may be omitted to make way for it. In this chant, the verses may be sung alternately between two groups, all joining to sing the antiphon (and “Amen”) together.
115. After the Washing of Feet (if it take place during Mass), the Credo is omitted, and Mass continues with the Offertory. The third verse of the Agnus Dei concludes miserere nobis (i.e., not dona nobis pacem). At Communion the choir should sing the antiphon Dominus Jesus. If the distribution takes a long while, any or all of the Psalms given in the Liber Usualis on pages 680–684 may be added. The antiphon Dominus Jesus should be repeated at the end of each Psalm (or portion thereof, if Communion comes to an end in the middle of a Psalm). Gloria Patri is never sung. The dismissal is Benedicamus Domino, to which all respond Deo gratias (see ¶ 77).
116. After Mass, preparations are made for the Procession of the Blessed Sacrament; no music is required until the procession actually begins to move, at which time the cantor(s) should intone the hymn Pange lingua. All join at corporis mysterium. This first verse is never repeated, and the final two verses (Tantum ergo and Genitori) are not sung until the procession has reached the altar of repose. Therefore, if the way is prolonged, the second, third, and fourth verses are repeated as necessary, as long as the procession is moving. [It is also permitted to add other hymns, chants, or Psalms; however, they must be in Latin and may not include Gloria Patri or the word alleluia.]
117. When the procession arrives at the altar of repose, the celebrant will place the Blessed Sacrament on the altar, then kneel and give up the humeral veil. Only now should the final two verses of Pange lingua (Tantum ergo and Genitori, with Amen) be sung.
118. No further music is required; the Psalm at the stripping of the altars is recited.
