Notes: The alternate refrain can be sung in unison. At the conclusion of the psalm it should be sung in four-part canon. It is an unusual canon in that it is not rhythmic. Each measure settles on the last note. All breathe together and then commence with the next measure. Establish the pace for the fermata and the breath at the first singing of the refrain in unison.
