Music sheet and download links are after the jump.
Sing the response twice at the start and end of the song. Sing only once in between verses.
Note that the first beat in the response is a rest.
If the last note of the verse is too low, feel free to transpose to a higher key such as Bb minor or B minor.
Story Behind the Song:
Using a minor chord for the response gives it a sadder tone. But also, it gives it a more ethnic, folk feel which I wanted the song to possess since the antiphon addresses Jerusalem.
