Music - Liturgy

 The Sequence

The Sequence is a liturgical hymn dating back to the ninth century.  In former practice it was an elaboration of the Alleluia and followed the Alleluia and its verse.  Now it precedes the Gospel Acclamation so that the Sequence concludes with the Alleluia.  There are 4 Sequences in the Roman Missal:  Easter Sunday (Christians to the Paschal Victim), Pentecost Sunday (Come, O Holy Spirit Come), Solemnity of the Body and Blood of the Lord (Laud, O Zion) and the Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows (Stabat Mater).  Only 2 are obligatory:  Easter and Pentecost.

"God has bestowed upon His people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source. Indeed, God, the Giver of song, is present whenever His people sing His praises." (from "Sing to the Lord Music and Divine Worship, USCCB)
