Instructions for the 10am Psalm Leader

Organist will play the antiphon once; the choir will then sing the antiphon; the congregation will then join in singing the antiphon again. Organist will then play softly as you read the verses. Stop at each [ANT.] to allow the congregation to sing again.

Example

33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes, *
   and I shall keep it to the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; *
   I shall keep it with all my heart. [ANT.]

Psalm 119:33-34 BCP
