1st Sunday of Lent

For weeks before and after, see: Advent, Christmas, Ordinary Time after Epiphany or Lent, Holy Week

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.
