Exsultet in Spanish

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  I recently heard a recording of someone singing the exsultet in Spanish and the thought came to mind. At the Easter Vigil in a multicultural parish can the exsultet be sung in two different languages, say different segments or is it to be sung in its entirety by one cantor.


A:  Guidelines for multicultural liturgies are on the usccb web site: http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/sacred-art-and-music/multicultural-liturgies/index.cfm

I would not advise a bilingual exsultet. It’s probably better to make the text available in written form in the other language, either in a handout or by projection.
