Dominican Rite Missa Cantata at Dominican Nuns Monastery, Marbury AL

On the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, O.P., celebrated a Missa Cantata for the Dominican cloistered nuns of the Monastery of St. Jude in Marbury AL.   The sisters have kindly shared these photographs of the event.

The nuns of Marbury celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours in Latin using the traditional antiphons, hymns, and responsories from the Dominican Antiphonale.  They also sing Mass using the chants of the Dominican Gradual.

Corrected Antiphonarium Files Available

Thanks to the Dominican nuns of St. Jude Monastery in Marbury AL, who use the Antiphonarium pro Liturgia Horarum iuxta Usum Ordinis Praedicatorum, which is available for down load in five files on our left sidebar, I can now make available new files with corrections and improvements.

This resource allows an individual or group to sing the entire Latin Liturgy of the Hours in traditional Dominican Chant.  I thank my sisters at Marbury for their careful correction of these texts!
