What Is a Canticle? The term 'canticle' comes from the word cantare in Latin, meaning 'to sing'. Canticles were originally self-contained songs that were used within the liturgies of the Office and Mass to praise God. They are frequently drawn from the Old and New Testaments, as you will see below but they also came to include the three 'Creeds' or statements of faith as well. They are frequently included after the 150 psalms in the many psalters from Anglo-Saxon England.
