An introit or introitus is the proper antiphon used to accompany the entrance procession at Mass. It usually takes the form antiphon-Psalm verse-Gloria Patri-antiphon but may be extended with extra psalm verses (with repetitions of the antiphon) for some long processions.

In many Protestant traditions the name Introit is given to the Call to Worship, a short 'entering' into the spirit of prayer before the processional hymn. Amy Beach's miniatures fall into this category.
