Chant Settings of the Lenten Gospel Acclamation

The Church is nine days away from burying the Alleluia for the Season of Lent, and most parishes will sing in its place the Verse Before the Gospel as it is found in the Lectionary, paired with a Lenten Gospel Acclamation.

It may be a nice opportunity to introduce your parish to some new settings that are deeply inspired by the Gregorian chant tradition, and that are composed in the Gregorian modes.

Here are three settings from Illuminare Publications:

Mode II:

Mode V:

Mode VII:

A cantor/choir edition containing all of the Gospel Verses for the entire Lenten Season, in addition to an accompaniment edition can be downloaded for free at the Illuminare Score Library.

These settings can be found in the Lumen Christi Missal, and in other forthcoming additions to the Lumen Christi Series. You can learn more here.
