Sunday III, plus a slashed RV

Two symbols one should be familiar with when it comes to the Responsorial Psalm and other responsories:

The slashed "R", above left (symbolized as "R./" here in the blog), is not the symbol for a prescription medicine in this case, but for the response, that one- or two-liner sung by the choir and congregation.  The slashed "V", above right (symbolized often as "V./"), is the symbol for the verse(s) sung by a chanter or group of chanters (aka a semi-choir).  The more traditional name for these verses is "versicles" (like "popsicles").  Meanwhile, the verses or a hymn are traditionally named "stanzas".  I, like many others, when announcing particular stanzas, found it so much easier to say "verses", probably because it's been a habit in my 37+ years as an organist, both in speaking and in listening. ;)
