Hello fellow church musicians,
Thank you for visiting and learning more about The Living Church Acclaims (TLCA). TLCA provides a fresh-sounding, easy-to-learn, contemporary musical setting of the appointed responsorial psalm & Gospel acclamation for each Sunday and holy day of the liturgical year. It serves equally well as a weekly psalm & Gospel acclamation resource or as a complement to your existing repertoire. Like Respond & Acclaim, there are six different Gospel acclamation melodies throughout the book.
TLCA uses 100% official texts from the Roman Catholic Lectionary and is approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The verses may be sung in rhythm or chanted while accompanists play chords as needed. Refrains for the assembly are online at the TLCA Refrains page. Feel free to download a preview copy [Guitar/Vocal or Keyboard/Vocal], read NPM's review, and listen to some recordings. My hope is that TLCA contributes meaningfully to your music ministry.
