Music for Next Sunday and Lent Year B

Psalms and Gospel Acclamations for Lent Year A, Australia and New Zealand Lectionary

by Kate Keefe

Let the people praise you, O God; let all the people praise you

Here are my singable settings of the Psalms, Responses and Lent Gospel Acclamation for Lent Year A, in downloadable PDF and playable MP3 formats, from the lectionary for Australia and New Zealand Catholic congregations. Read about Lent Year A and the theme of Penitence.

The Roman numerals I,II,III,IV,V after each Acclamation title indicate which of the various Lent Gospel Acclamation refrains is used. You can read more about using the Acclamations, with an update here.

Read what Kate writes about this week's music or explore our music for Australia and New Zealand. I have also composed settings for the UK and Ireland, for Canada and for the United States and Philippines
