Pat Schaefer, from Our Lady of Angels in Hermiston, Oregon has this to say about TLCA:
"I wanted to share with you how very much I am enjoying the new versions of the Responsorial Psalms and Gospel Acclamations from your new book, TLCA. I've been using it every week since the first Sunday of Advent... The congregation has also responded in such a positive way. I think they too were excited to have something new happening instead of the same old same'o.... Also, I truly enjoy the new Alleluias and verses. Each time its a new Alleluia I teach that as well. The people are beginning to remember them and also responding nicely."
We are happy to announce that instant individual downloads of Responsorial Psalms & Gospel Acclamations from The Living Church Acclaims (TLCA) are now being made available! We have heard from customers that it would be helpful if you could choose music for individual liturgies as an alternative to (or complement to) buying complete TLCA editions: starting today, the new downloads are in the Zeal Store!
Thank you for the valuable feedback and please share this news with church musicians you think might benefit! Here's how they appear in the Zeal Store:

"What a wonderful collection of accessible proclamations of God's word in a vocabulary adaptable to a wide variety of music ensembles with extreme flexibility. Thanks for taking the time, effort, skill and muse to put it all to paper and share with us all in this new endeavor.
My best to you and compliments. This will be a great resource for me - thank you."

Note: The main purpose of this recording is to help musicians learn it quickly, so to save time, the Refrain is sung twice at the beginning and once at the end. Of course, during the liturgy, the Refrain would be sung after each verse.
Psalm refrain texts for the congregation match the most commonly-used missals for easy integration. Reprintable refrains are in the back of each songbook and also available to be downloaded on the TLCA Extras page.
