Alle, psallite cum luya is a 13th century conductus from the Montpellier codex. First performed in modern Virginia Glee Club history during the 50th annual Christmas concerts, the work is generally performed as an antiphonal processional, with a two part round sung over a bass ground line. It has been recorded on 50th Annual Christmas Concert, 51st Annual Christmas Concert, and A Dove in the Hall.
The text of the conductus is a macaronic setting, based on the word "alleluia," that interjects progressively longer Latin phrases between the syllables "alle" and "luya."
The work was also sometimes performed in a "ritual" version late in the evening after Glee Club parties at the Glee Club House.
