Weekday 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, for weekdays other than Feast Days. These are settings people have asked us for (mostly from Adelaide Cathedral, who regularly use them at weekday and other Masses). You can find them arranged by the seasons of the Church's year. We do not have a complete set of the 2-year cycle, but if you need a Psalm that we have not yet posted, please contact us - we may be able to help.

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.

We also have psalm settings for Sundays, Feast Days and Saints' Days and you can explore all our music for Australia and New Zealand. And we have psalms and responses for UK and Ireland, for the United States and Philippines and for Canadian congregations.
