"Hallelujah", a new Polish wedding tradition

Postby mirka » Mon Dec 05, 2016 11:19 am


Last couple of years a new tradition emerged in Poland: during a wedding ceremony in church "Hallelujah" is performed, often with a new translation, lacking sexual overtones of the original Leonard's text.
The new tradition became so widespread that in some dioceses of the Catholic church the bishops issued official orders prohibiting "singing secular songs during religious rituals in church" (Poland is a rather strange country :-().

A couple of alternate versions performed at various times during wedding ceremony:
