Music for Next Sunday

Responsorial Psalms and Canticles for Canadian Lectionary

by Kate Keefe

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

What is available

Here are my singable Settings of the Psalms, Responses and Canticles from the Lectionary for use by Canadian Catholic congregations. We have psalms for the full 3-Year Cycle of Sundays, as well as the major feasts. 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 Canada. And we have psalms and responses for the UK and Ireland, the United States and Philippines and for Australia and New Zealand.
