Starting from Passion Sunday until Easter Sunday, excepts on feasts, there is no Gloria Patri after the verse.
- Play a few notes for the incipit: EGFE.
- Try not to pause at the quarter bar after causam meam. Interesting how the melody on the word causam is familiar and seems easy to remember.
- Watch out the major third down BG at gente, with a lengthened G to regroup.
- quia tu starts on G which is a major third down BG from the previous word me; another way to pitch this G is to memorize the lengthened G at the end of doloso.

D/E
The melody seems to remind Grad. Exsurge from 3rd Sunday of Lent. It starts the same... and that's it pretty much, because there are many differences and it is slightly more difficult.
- Take a good breath before inimicis meis, there is a long melism on "meis". And remember to say the "s" at the end, not at the quarter bar.
- The porrectus of facere starts on two notes C and A, sung before on the word me. So it is just a repetition of the same CA.
- Also watch out the drop a major third down BG at facere. Plus the second one AF at the end.
- Take a good breath at the quarter bar after voluntatem before engaging the long melism of tuam.
- If you have to breathe on liberator meus it sounds better if you pause at the second quarter bar. Otherwise if you are two cantors, the other one can breathe at the first quarter bar, and later eventually. And don't forget the "s" at the end.
- The melody on the word iracundis is tricky: tristropha + episemed C then semitone towards B, coming back to dotted note C and once again B, so it is really like a repetition; the difficulty comes with the jump a minor third BD followed by a gentle come back on the climacus DCB. After that it is easier.
- The next words ab insurgentibus are a bit difficult to articulate at first (especially the "ab") ending on a semitone CB... and without any pause it continues towards in me. It ends strangely on a semitone FE after a drop a major third AF.
- In the same way the words exaltabis me end on a semitone CB followed by a full bar, a big stop.
- The intervals on the words a viro are tricky: there is the podatus minor third DB followed by a torculus CED which is actually a big major third. If you don't push it high enough you might miss the coming back to D at iniquo.
- Watch out the two major thirds on the last word me: BG and AF; especially the second one AF: during the first distropha AA visualise the F as major third then sing a simple Do-Re-Mi for FGA, and find the second distropha AA, same as before.
Tract. Saepe expugnaverunt
Ps. 128, 1-4.
8 LU571

MV500
GR153
E/F
* v1. Strange incipit going down to the bottom of the staff. Use the various lenghtenings to walk through step by step. For the intonation play three notes G, F and D.
- Watch out the B flat on the word expugnaverunt.
* v2. Like the Tract. Ad te levavi from 3rd Sunday of Lent you find again an episema on top of a torculus resupinus, here on the word dicat: no need to lengthen everything it would be fastidious; lengthen the first and second notes, come back to speed on the third and sing the fourth note as normal.
- Before starting the word saepe, visualise the major third FA in your head / ear.
- Walk carefully through the second expugnaverunt, there are a few neumes but only one note C on "ve".
- On the words a juventute mea it can be done by pausing and breathing after juventute and sing the rest in one breath.
- Now there is a big difficulty on mea: the coming of the B flat, and you don't expect it especially after the few B natural; fortunately you have a double A and a dotted G to prepare yourself for it. The end of the verse is a well-known pattern for a Tract in mode 8 .
* v3. First difficulty is the jump a fourth GC on potuerunt, anticipated by a podatus FG. Go light to reach top C.
- The syllable "sum" on the word dorsum starts on G, the same note as supra, one note to remember.
* v4. The same podatus FG + fourth GC can be heard on iniquitatem.
- The first syllable of concidet has many as seven notes, it is tempting to say the "ci" too early...
- Be very careful at the last neume, on peccatorum: unlike a classic mode 8 Tract ending it has this little hold on two notes C before releasing the finish... You don't want to trip at the last second.
Offert. Confitebor tibi... in toto

C/C
- Lots of up and down in this piece.
- Difficult descent AFD on toto, no need to rush, let your voice descend naturally. The same descent happens on retribue.
- In a similar way it happens on vivifica me and verbuum, down from top C.
- It might sound better if you sing vivam straight on from servo tuo, eventually without pausing at the half bar.

E/F
Very strange piece in mode 8; the tenor C does not appear until the second half, and when it appears it is just passing through without proper recitation. In the meantime you spent most of the time on four notes F, G, A, B, succession of tones, no semitone. The whole sentiment is probably related to the authority of the text:
This is My Body, which shall be given up for you: this is the cup of the new covenant in My Blood.
- The only semitone comes with E and a strange fourth down AE on pro vobis, like a reaching down to the people.
- Eventually the association of tenor C and final G happens at dicit Dominus and it is a relief. Says the Lord.
- Remember to pronounce quotiescumque as quo-tsi-escumque.
- The top notes CDEED emphasizes a solemn command: Do this as often as you receive it, in remembrance of Me.
- And we are back to the four notes FGAB for the end of the antiphon.
- You might experience a strange sensation when singing the psalm verses which is purely (solemn) psalm tone 8, after the antiphon which can barely be described as a mode 8.
- And of course no Gloria Patri at the end of the psalm verses.

Difficult piece, one of the few Graduale in mode 4.
Maybe it will be easier to sing the verse in psalm tone (see mixed version below).
- Here too count the notes on the tricky word voluntate: 4-1-1-3.
- Be very careful on the word me after assumpsisti: at first, pause at the quarter bar after the easy fourth GD and DEFG; second sing FGA like a Do-Re-Mi to come back to the same F followed by E, semitone, then F again, hold the note on the episema to jump a third FA + a semitone ABb, quickly followed by a minor third down BbG which is already tricky; and then we come to the difficult note: the A and be sure you are on A, it is lenghtened. Then you can take the ending, torculus GAG and clivis GE. Oof!
- Sorry for not analysing the verse... A bit difficult for me. We'll sing it in psalm tone.
