Songs We Sing: “Kiev Alleluia”

Squeezebox is a place for our Song Leaders, as well as congregants, to learn the songs we sing at St. Lydia’s.


We’ll be singing this Alleluia, drawn from the St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church hymnal, “Music For Liturgy,” and entitled Kovalyevsky Kiev Chant, during the season of Easter as our Gathering Song.

Click to listen to a recording of the Kiev Alleluia, and take a look at the sheet music here.  We’ll sing the melody, found on the top line, but will be improvising the other harmony lines.

Please note that the pronunciation of the word “Alleluia” is a bit different in this Ukrainian song — A-le-lu-ee-a!
