This is part of an ongoing series of equal-voice fauxbourdons designed to accompany antiphons and psalmody for both the Mass and Divine Office.
These are easily adaptable for a schola of any size. Sing a few verses with the Gloria Patri or all the verses depending on the time needed for the distribution of communion and its procession. The antiphonal nature along with the mix of plainchant and polyphony are sure to make any liturgy all the more solemn and prayerful.

Communio Tone 6 à 3 | Ecce sic benedicetur_Ps.Beati Omnes 2022
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: that walk in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee.
Thy wife as a fruitful vine, on the sides of thy house. Thy children as olive plants, round about thy table.
May the Lord bless thee out of Sion: and mayst thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
And mayst thou see thy children’s children, peace upon Israel.
Glory be to the Father...
