Here is a selection of alleluia and Gospel Acclamation settings in downloadable PDF and playable MP3 formats. They were written for the Lectionary for use in Catholic churches in the UK, Ireland, and places that use similar lectionaries, but we also have settings for US congregations and for Australia and New Zealand and Canadian congregations.
The Acclamations are 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. The Roman numerals I,II,III,IV,V after each Lent Gospel Acclamation title indicate which of the various refrains is used. 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.
