Alleluias and Lent Gospel Acclamations, US and Philippines 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 Gospel Acclamation and Alleluia settings from the Lectionary in downloadable PDF and playable MP3 formats. They were written for use by Catholic congregations in the US, Philippines and places that use similar lectionaries. We also have have settings for the UK and Ireland 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 setting 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.
