Memorial Acclamations 

Memorial acclamations were common in the eucharistic liturgies of the east. The memorial acclamations of Eucharistic Prayers A, B, and C are based on the same text, which was the most commonly used acclamation at this place in the eastern liturgies. These prayers also may anticipate or serve as prayers of anamnesis, which recall the past and future completion of salvation history in the present moment. The memorial acclamation may be said or sung. The Hymnal 1982 provides musical settings for the memorial acclamation of Eucharistic Prayers A (S 132-S 135), B (S 136-S 138), and D (S 139-S 141). The Hymnal 1982 Accompaniment Edition, Vol. 1 also provides additional musical settings for the memorial acclamation of Eucharistic Prayers A (S 366), B (S 367-S 368), and D (S 371-S 372). The people's response following the institution narrative in Eucharistic Prayer C is included in the musical setting of S 370.
