I know that in Ascensiontide one says the psalm antiphons of Paschaltide, but does one use the Paschaltide version of the commemoration of Ss. Marcellinus and Peter on 6/2, and for other commemorations in Ascensiontide? Thanks as always--

Yes - Ascensiontide is really part of the greater season of Eastertide.
