In several instances both these forms occur together, e.g.:-

The sign * in the course of the recitation marks the place where a break should be made for taking breath. All stops should be observed exactly as in reading, but never used as breathing places unless accompanied by this sign.

The bars in the pointing of the words correspond with those in the music. In the middle of the chant there are two notes in the bar, and one syllable will fall on each note, e.g.:-

d Sing unto the Lord bless His .

name

Where only one syllable occurs it is followed by dots or a dash; and the two notes have to be sung to it, e.g.:

Where more than two syllables occur, a dot or a hyphen, according to circumstances, shows the division, e.g.:

d Strength . . . and beauty

Except in a very few places, which are clearly indicated, all words are to be sung as they would be read-e.g., grieved as griev'd, not griev-ed.

The speed adopted in chanting should not be so great as to interfere with the clear enunciation of every word and syllable ; but, on the average, it should not be slower than is absolutely needful to secure this clearness. A fair amount of movement makes the singing of even a long Psalm easy and enjoyable.
