Responsorial

   Method of chanting a psalm, by which a soloist (cantor) sings the opening verse, a choir sings the next verse, and so on in alternation. Other kinds of chant, notably responsories, may be performed responsorially. In such cases, the choir sings the framing respond and the cantor the verse(s).
