Suggestions on Chanting. 1. The words, from the commencement of each verse and half-verse, up to the accented syllable, are ealled the Recitation.
2. On reaching the the accented syllable, and beginning with it, the music of the chant commences, in strict time (a tempo), the upright strokes corresponding to the bars. The Recitation must therefore be considered as outside the chant, and may be of any length. The note on which the Recitation is made is called the Reciting-note.
3. If there is no syllable after that which is accented, the accented syllable must be held for one whole bar or measure.
4. An asterisk (*) is a direction to take breath. Other stops (, ;) must be attended to as in good reading.
5. As the accent holds the position of the first beat of the first bar, it is unnecessary to sing it louder than any of the words recited : its position, musically, will give it quite enough emphasis.
6. Final ed is always pronounced as a separate syllable.
