Here is the practice material for the Canticle of Zachariah.  A helpful way to remember that jump from “re” to “la” in the second syllable is to think of the Star Wars song – once you have the movement from the low note to the high note in your head, it will be much easier to sing.   I also included the words and recording of the Canticle itself so that you can practice the rhythm of the words.  Remember, men have the even # verses and women have the odd.  Once you’ve practiced the Antiphon and the Canticle a couple times separately, try going directly from the Canticle melody to the Antiphon to get used to moving from the “sol” to the low “do”.
