Thirty Ecumenical Responses [each 1']
Introit: Oh Lord, Open Our Mouths
The Lord is in His Holy Temple
Thirty Ecumenical Responses – actually there are more! – consists of a number of very brief, free-standing amens and introits, appropriate for any English -language sacred service of any denomination of any monotheistic Western religion. (Although of course the amens have even wider applicability, since that single word belongs to many languages and religions.) Some are easier than others, some require fewer than four parts. Look them over – they may be useful alternatives to more familiar settings.
