  Alleluia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Alleluia is one of the responsorial chants in the Mass.
When a Sequence follows the Alleluia, this final repeat is omitted, as it was in other cases in the Middle Ages.
Alleluias were also among the more frequently used chants to create early organa, such as in the Winchester Troper.

 Alleluia
Even as a form of divine acclaim its force was intensified, the feeling it evoked deepened, the ideas it suggested widened and elevated, and, above all, purified under the spiritualizing influence of Christian thought.
As that thought's supreme expression of thanksgiving, joy, and triumph, "Alleluia" assumed a wider and deeper, a higher and holier, meaning than it earlier had in the liturgy of the Hebrew people.
The only difference in regard to it between those of the East and West is that in the former it is still, as it seems at first to have been generally, used all through the year, even during Lent, and in Offices for the dead, as the Christian cry of victory over sin and death.

Alleluia will be everyone's sure tip this afternoon, at likely odds of around 4-1, which many backers will feel is a guaranteed 400 per cent return (tax free, too) for the effort of filling out a betting slip.
If you hired a QC to pick holes in her form, one line of attack might be that her three runs on heavy ground last year were all disappointing, and the going at Newmarket today will be on the easy side of good.
Today's assignment is certainly very different to the one Alleluia faced at Doncaster, and at the expected odds, she cannot represent value.

 Alleluia Chant from UMKC's Book of Gregorian Chant
The Alleluia of the Mass is a Proper chant sung during the Fore-Mass after the Gradual on liturgical occasions associated with penitence and fasting (most notably during Lent), and on ones associated with sorrow (such as the Requiem Mass), when it may be replaced by the Tract.
The Alleluia is performed in a responsorial manner: first the word ‘alleluia’ is sung, concluding with an extended melismatic flourish - the Jubilus; then a verse is chanted in a moderately elaborate setting; and finally the Alleluia is repeated.
Throughout much of the Middle Ages a cantor intoned the Alleluia without its Jubilus and the chorus answered with the entire Alleluia; one or two cantors sang the verse and the chorus entered for the final word or two (usually concluding with a melisma echoing that of the Jubilus); the chorus, finally, repeated the Alleluia.

 Burying the Alleluia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In fact, schedule a number of Alleluia hymns to be sung on this festival marking the end of the Epiphany season.
Explain the tradition of burying the Alleluia for the season of Lent, and then enlist the children in folding the banner or parament and laying it in the "casket." Be sure to invite the kids to wave goodbye and pretend to mourn with "boo-hoos" and wiping of "tears." Fun is the operative word.
Thus the Alleluia is sung for the last time and not heard again until it suddenly bursts into glory during the Mass of the Easter Vigil when the celebrant intones this sacred word after the Epistle, repeating it three times, as a jubilant herald of the Resurrection of Christ.

 City on a Hill - Sing Alleluia - a Review of The Phantom Tollbooth
For Sing Alleluia, the sophomore volume in the City on a Hill set, Hindalong recruits Common Children front man Marc Byrd to help with production and songwriting tasks and, together with the stable of artists assembled, their work is nothing short of stellar.
If Alleluia possesses a slightly muted sense of the indie spirit that sprinkled Hindalong's previous forays into modern worship music, it nonetheless carries with it a greater accessibility and forfeits virtually none of the originality and artistic merit that have long stamped Hindalong's and Byrd's previous efforts.
The gem of Sing Alleluia would have to be the collaboration of Powell and Fernando Ortega on “Our Great God.” Both men’s vocals complement each remarkably well and the two joined together to write some of the most moving lyrics on the album as well.

 Retiring the Alleluia Banner/Crucifix Exchange
It is an ancient custom in the Christian Church that a "Farewell to Alleluia" be sung at the close of the last Worship Services on the Sunday before Ash Wednesday.
Traditionally "alleluia" is not sung in the Worship Services until Easter Sunday early Worship Service, symbolizing our voluntary restraint of praise during the penitential Season of Lent.
As the Alleluia Banner is paraded throughout the church, the choir will sing the 11th Century Hymn "Alleluia Song of Sweetness".

Tamar is determined to avenge her friends and family, to free Samaria from the double stranglehold of angelic power and peoples' fear of the "god." Tamar meets Jared, an open-minded angel willing to help her on her quest, and the two disparate young people form an uneasy alliance.
In the second book Alleluia learns some disturbing information about the god of Samaria, Jovah, and, as we learn in this text, records her findings for future generations to discover when they are ready.
Power within the society is shifting away from the angels, and the Archangel appears to be pursuing an agenda of his own which appears to be in direct conflict with his predestined role within that society.

 Sometimes Alleluia - by Chuck Girard
If you wade through all that excitement, though, Chuck Girard emerges best known for a simple and beautiful worship song called "Sometimes Alleluia." The chorus is a quiet, awestruck observation that adoration for Christ should make up the central theme of our lives, though our praises may take different forms.
The birth of "Sometimes Alleluia" is best understood within the context of Chuck's own spiritual journey.
This was a verbatim line from 'Sometimes Alleluia!' It was staggering to me, and I thought, 'well that's the Holy Spirit!' I've lost contact with what sermon it was, but I'd love to find it again."

 Eleleu-ih or Alleluia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Reckart Note: Isn't it interesting that Calmer says Praise ye the Lord is the same as "alleluia" as found in Revelation 19, and then when he tries to justify this word he falls flat on his face.
Yea, he says "impossible." He then feels humbled that he must confess the word "alleluia" is a fabrication replacing the Greek "eleleu ih" which was a solemn word in the hymns of Apollo.
Therefore, the praise "eleleu hi" should have been transliterated into some English form and rendered for its true Greek meaning rather then a substitution of "alleluia" a Jewish form of "praise Yah." Especially when we discover the multitide speaking in heaven were speaking Greek and not Hebrew.

 Hallelujah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hallelujah, Halleluyah, or Alleluia, is a transliteration of the Hebrew word הַלְּלוּיָהּ (Standard Hebrew Halləluya, Tiberian Hebrew Halləlûyāh) meaning "[Let us] praise (הַלְּלוּ) Jah (Yah) (יָהּ)" (Sometimes rendered as "Praise (הַלְּלוּ) [the] LORD (יָהּ)or God").
It is found mainly in the book of Psalms.
In many denominations, the Alleluia, along with the Gloria in Excelsis Deo, is not spoken or sung during the season of Lent, instead being replaced by a Lenten acclamation.
