The 3 settings (Psalm 145a, b, c) share the same music with different responses. This is one of my oldest settings. The Lectionary references are slightly confusing: Advent 3 and OT 4 share the same verses in the Lectionary; whereas 23, 26, 32 all share the same verse – in spite of the different references. The Latin Lectionary actually has the same set of verses for all 5 Sundays – 7. 8-9ab. 9c-10. The confusion probably arises from the verse number in the Grail which suggests that are different orders for Greek & Hebrew texts.
