Alleluias and Lent Gospel Acclamations for Canadian Lectionary

by Kate Keefe

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

What is available

Here is a selection of singable Alleluia and Gospel Acclamation settings in downloadable PDF and playable MP3 formats, for the Lectionary used by Canadian Catholic congregations. They are all arranged alphabetically by the first few words of the verse to help you identity the one you are looking for.

For Alleluias we give the name of the Alleluia settings for ease of reference - you can read more about how I named them. If you would like to know more about setting Alleluias and Acclamations, you can read my blogs on setting the word Alleluia and setting the verse.

The Roman numerals I,II,III,IV,V after each Lent Gospel Acclamation title indicate which of the various refrains is used. Read more about using the Acclamations.

You are welcome to use your own combinations of Acclamation verses with alleluias or Lent Gospel Acclamations. The Mayfield, Stuart and Petropavlovsk alleluias are "canon alleluias", i.e. they are written so that the congregation or choir can continue to sing the alleluia softly under the verse as the cantor sings it. By varying the instrumentation, you can also find other uses for them. We also have settings for UK and Ireland, for Australia and New Zealand and for United States and Philippines congregations.
