Getting to know the Psalm Tones: Weeks II and IV

This will follow the same format as the previous post.  Be sure to read Chant Basics with the Pater Noster and Getting to know the Psalm Tones: Weeks I and III before going through this post.  See if you can figure out the melody before listening to the audio for each.

Weeks II and IV:

Psalm 1

ToneVIIIa

sol / la … do / ti / la

Psalm 2

ToneIID

fa / mi / re / do … do / re

*I think this is the first post with the “fa” clef, telling us where fa is rather than do (which lands on a space rather than a line in this scale).

New Testament Canticle

ToneVc

do / re / do … do // la / te / do

Canticle of Mary

ToneVIId2

re / mi / fa / re … do // mi / re
