A few weeks ago we changed our practice for Communion and instead of receiving Holy Communion first and the singing we now begin singing once the priest has received and join the procession at the end. To allow the possibility of the congregation also joining (something which they do at other parts of the Mass) the music is given in the Mass sheet. As there is always the possibility of being unaccompanied, as we were this morning, we are using Psallite as that will work whether accompanied or not. With accompaniment last week there was a good improvisation for the latter half of communion; today there was silence. Which though I know to be preferable I wonder if a reprise might be worthwhile.
