Any help on this would be much appreciated. I’m Christian marrying a Catholic and having a Catholic ceremony. Our priest told me that to include some singing is a nice touch. I have an uncle who is doing my readings and also has a great voice. While choosing our readings I noticed that the responsorial psalm has an option to be read or sung. How to I obtain the material to give him of the “sung version?” I had originally chosen Psalm 145:8-9, 10&15, 17-18. <-and yes, it’s one reading lol 🙂

Talk to whoever normally does the music at that parish.

In my experiene, the responsorial psalm is sung more often than not. Talk to the parish musician – there are lots of settings to choose from. You might also start by looking at the hymnal the parish uses (“Gather,” “Worship,” “We Celebrate,” “Ritual Song” are some of the common ones) and see what’s in there. Usually there will be a section of Psalms toward the beginning of the hymnal, and often there are 2-3 choices for many of the psalms.

Here’s a link to Scott Soper’s. I Will Praise Your Name (Psalm 145). It is a beautiful Psalm.
