What Does Your Alleluia Sound Like? Part 2: Composing Your Alleluia

So Part 1 (at https://stdunstans.com/?page_id=35497&preview=true) had a lot of alleluias—and it didn’t comprise an exhaustive list! They’re different too, and they all work! In that, we can find freedom to play and experiment with our own alleluias, and the noticing that we did helps us start to compose our own alleluia.

Composing your own alleluia may sound like a big ask for some people, and that’s okay-many composers have felt that way !

Some things that can help include:

So, breathe.

(You’ve got this!)

Set a timer for 5 minutes.

(If you want more time, you can take it!)

What does your alleluia sound like?

Some tools for recording, working on, or communicating your alleluia include:

  • Chrome Songmaker
  • Zoom (especially with original sound turned on) lets you record either voice or instrumental performances to your computer for free (with an account). (The link goes to Zoom’s instructions for how to do this!)
  • Noteflight (requires an account, free for a limited number of scores)
