Ask Ambrose: Alternatives to the Sequence Hymn

Picture of Gradual Psalms resourceQ: Our previous Music Director had a book full of Gospel Acclamations to use with an alleluia chant, which we did instead of a sequence hymn. Do you know of an Episcopal resource for this?

A: I imagine your previous director had the Gradual Psalms book published by Church Publishing in the Church Hymnal Series IV. There is a revised version by Bruce Ford for the RCL lectionary. It also includes a CD-ROM with graphic files for printing. You can purchase it on Amazon.
