1) Antiphonal

2) Ironically enough, I was listening to an NPR Fresh Air Interview between Terry Gross and Stephen Colbert, when I heard him use the word “anthemic”. So I went to look up this word, which is defined as a song of loyalty or devotion, and came across the word “antiphonally”. The following is the sentence in which the word was found: “Anthem: a song or hymn sung antiphonally or responsively”

3) Define Antiphonal (by Dictionary.com): alternate or responsive singing by a choir in two divisions

Pronounced: An-tiph-o-nal

Used as an adjective

4)The church chior opted for a song that they could sing antiphonally since the chior had both men and women in it.
