Responsorial Psalms and Canticles for Australian and New Zealand Lectionary

by Kate Keefe

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

What is available

Here are my Settings of the Psalms, Responses and Canticles from the Lectionary for Australian and New Zealand Catholic churches. We have settings for Sundays, major Feasts and Saints' Days round the 3-year cycle. We also have a number of Weekday Psalm settings. If you need a Psalm that we have not yet posted, please contact us - we may be able to help. We also have settings of the Gospel Acclamations.

A lot goes in to setting a psalm. For example, what makes a good psalm response? Or what comes first, rhythm or melody? And where does the Psalmist's confidence come from? You can read about many other fascinating questions on Kate's blog about the Psalms or see what Kate writes about this week's music.

You can also explore our music for Australia and New Zealand. And we have psalms and responses for UK and Ireland, for the United States and for Canadian congregations.
