Baptism of the Lord

Simple English Proper (Lumen Christi Gradual and Modal Responsorial Psalms). The Roman Missal gives us these Bible verses to be sung per the examples recorded: the congregation joins the cantor for the antiphon (printed), then the cantor sing the Psalm alone, then the congregation and cantor repeat the antiphon.
