"Psalm 8, with its well-known and powerful refrain, is a jubilant expression of praise that continues to the end of the psalm. It is most commonly experienced as the appointed psalm for Trinity Sunday, Year C, though it is also appointed for weekday Masses during Easter and Ordinary Time, and for celebrations of Christian Initiation; for the Country and Progress of Peoples; and for the Beginning of the Year. Additionally, it is one of the beloved psalms for the celebration of Morning Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours. . . . The choral textures are central to this psalm setting; extra care will be required from the choir or schola." —David Haas
