This is Our Accepted Time

This is Our Salvation

This is Our Accepted Time was written in 1955 by Sulpician Priest, Fr. Michael Gannon. It is set to the 1609 tune, Weimar (Vulpius) by composer, Melchior Vulpius (c.1560-1615). He was the Lutheran cantor in Weimar, Germany from 1602 to 1615. Many of his chorale melodies are still in use today. An alternative tune that can be used is Aurelia, as featured in the following video. In the Liturgy of the Hours, This is Our Accepted Time is sung during Lent.

Alternative Tune: Aurelia
