For further illustrations the student should consult "The Southwark Psalter" (Longmans, Green & Co.).
Exercise 34.
(a)   Play an accompaniment to the Apostles' Creed on G, using this note as dominant. Introduce a few modu­lations and sequences, and move to the opposite mode. The rhythm should be based on 4/4 time.
(b)   Play a similar accompaniment to the Lord's Prayer, using E for the monotone. Let this note be the tonic; use rhythm in 3/2 time, with rather slow pace in serious style.
(c)   Play an accompaniment to the Twenty-third Psalm, with monotone on E. Choose time, rhythm, key and style with care.
(d)   Take Psalm II and treat it similarly, with G as the monotone.
