Singing t h e W o rd
A P r a c t i c a l G uid e
C o n t e x t This newsletter targets two parts of the Liturgy of the Word in the Mass
the Responsorial Psalm and the Gospel Acclamation We know parishes find it
difficult to ensure that both are sung at Sunday Mass according to the Lectionary
It is not uncommon for these two parts to be read If the Psalm is sung at all there
is a temptation to substitute what is in the lectionary with paraphrased texts We
encourage you to think again about how to sing these two parts We will show you
that it is easy to do worthily and well
What Does the GIRM Say
The General Instruction of the Roman Missal GIRM sets out the Church s requirements for
the faithful celebration of Her Liturgy It explains the purpose of the responsorial psalm and
acclamation Of the responsorial psalm the GIRM says the following After the First Reading
follows the Responsorial Psalm which is an integral part of the Liturgy of the Word and
which has great liturgical and pastoral importance since it fosters meditation on the Word
of God GIRM No 61 1 Of the Gospel Acclamation the GIRM says the following After the
Reading that immediately precedes the Gospel the Alleluia or another chant laid down
by the rubrics is sung as the liturgical time requires GIRM No 62 2 the gathering of
the faithful welcome and greet the Lord who is about to speak to them in the Gospel and
profess their faith by means of the chant GIRM No 62 3
Singing the Psalm and acclamation are not optional extras something we only do if we can
organise the people and find the music It is preferable for the Responsorial Psalm TO BE
SUNG GIRM No 61 The Alleluia IS SUNG in every time of year other than Lent The verses
are taken from the Lectionary During Lent instead of the Alleluia the Verse before the
Gospel as given in the Lectionary IS SUNG GIRM No 62 4

The Psalm settings of Fr Joseph Gelineau can be ordered online
They are well crafted The verses have a singular pulse rhythm and
the words are fitted around it For a practical demonstration of how
to sing the Psalms of Gelineau refer to the following link https
www youtube com watch v x0xuLDBIfNQ The Psalm settings of
Douglas K Mews are available for order and follow the reciting
note 1 2 3 method already outlined The settings of Robert Loretz
are freely downloadable and use the Gregorian Psalm tones All
three composers use the text from the Lectionary They are best sung
with a simple organ accompaniment but can be sung effectively
unaccompanied Details for sourcing these settings are appended
