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.
