Psalm Antiphons 2 (Christmas)
These settings of psalm antiphons or refrains, sung at the beginning, close and at intervals between verses, announce and then echo the spirit of the text. The texts given for Lutheran Book of Worship users are from LBW; the texts chosen for Lutheran Worship users are similarly reflective of the psalm text. The texts here provided follow the Lectionary schedules of both ELCA and Missouri Synod. Handbells are used throughout in small numbers and are generally easy to play and take only a 3-5 ringers.
