A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

1. Officium ad Missam, or Introit, variable.

2. Ps. 43 recited by Priest and Server.

3. Spreading the Corporal, the Priest says Ps. 24:7–10. “Lift up.… King of glory.”

4. Psallendo, or Tract, an anthem after the Prophecy.

5. Lauda, an anthem after the Gospel.

6. Sacrificium, answering to the Roman offertory, but only occasionally from the Psalter.

7. At the fraction there is a short anthem, often from the Psalms.

8. At the Priest’s Communion, the Choir chants Ps. 34:8, 1, 22.

9. An anthem ad accedentes, as the people are invited to draw near, and an

10. Anthem at the Communion, are taken from the Psalter as well as from other parts of Scripture.

The manner in which the variable anthems from the Psalms are adapted to the different festivals is often exceedingly striking and beautiful, while the comparison of the several rites with one another yields a depth of Scriptural teaching which can hardly be apprehended by those who have not given special attention to the subject. Space does not permit the insertion of examples here, but it is quite worth while to examine the chief festivals of the year in the three great Western Liturgies along with the principal Eastern use, that of S. Chrysostom, in order to see the light they cast on each other, and on the whole mystical and typical teaching of Holy Writ.
