Feast of the Ascension 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.

Propers in Latin are identical in both Ordinary and Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. In many dioceses, the Ordinary Form celebration of the Feast is moved to the Sunday immediately following the Feast of the Ascension, then superseding the proper for the 7th Sunday after Easter.
