Alleluia Providentiae

Sundays of Ordinary Time: 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17

The Alleluia used in my old Providence Mass setting from 1997.  The Mass texts for that Mass are now outdated.  There may be a re-work of it at some point in time, but not in the near future.  However, I felt compelled to extract the Alleluia from it, thus the name Alleluia Providentiae.  This Alleluia (as well as the original Providence Mass) is influenced on the most part by some of the compositions of the late C. Alexander Peloquin (1918-1997), who was music director of the Cathedral of my home diocese (SS. Peter and Paul, Providence, RI) for 40 years (1950-1990).

Verses set to Psalm Tone 8.
