A very simple response the can be sung by the congration after each Prayer of the Faithful. For this purpose, the musical setting is written in such a way that it sounds well even when a fraction of the men are singing the soprano melody. It also works well when sung with equal voices.
I have prepared two editions of this piece: an international Latin edition with the text "Oremus ad Dominum: Domine exaudi nos" (Let us pray to the Lord: Lord hear us) and a German edition with the text "Christus höre uns: Christus erhöre uns".
