Angelis suis: the Lent I gradual

Angelis suis - "His angels" - is the gradual for the first Sunday of Lent; it's a beautiful chant, as sung here by Giovanni Vianini:

Here's the chant score:

As noted last year, all the chants for this first Sunday in Lent come from Psalm 91; this text is from verses 11-12.
To his Angels he has given a commandment concerning you, to keep you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Here are the propers for for Lent I, from the Brazilian Benedictines:
