Edition notes: This is a direct transcription (simply transposed up a half step) in modern notation of the Introit, without the verse that is included in the Choralis Constantinus I because that text does not match the verse for that Sunday's introit. "Rather than singing the polyphony twice, our practice has been to use the full Gregorian Proper + Vs + GP, and then go straight into the polyphony in lieu the repeated antiphon."
