|Songs Like Incense Recording (1978)|
Introduction from the Accompaniment Book
This collection of liturgical songs, with guitar and string bass accompaniment
and optional instrumental descants, consists of responsorial psalms for
congregational use. Normally the cantor will sing the refrain, this being repeated
by all immediately, and again after each verse.
When there is two-part harmony given for the refrain, it may be song by solo
voices alone, or by the entire congregation, the top line of music then being used
as the melody line.
The chords that are indicated are merely suggestions for a starting point, and
leave the individual performers the freedom to develop their own strum or picking
patterns, Chords that are marked with an asterisk (*) can be found in graph form
on page 35.
It is our hope that this music will prove to be for you, as it has for our monastic
community, a vehicle of peaceful, reflective and joyous prayer.
