1967 Dominican Rite English Breviary (vol. 2) Available for Download

It has been called to attention the the second volume of the English translation of the Breviary according to the Rite of the Order of Preachers, published by order of fr. Aniceto Fernandez, O.P., translated by the Irish Dominican Sisters (Dublin: St. Saviour's, 1967) has been made available online by Corpus Christi Watershead, in four PDF files.

I have also made these files available on the left side bar, here at Dominican Liturgy.  Please note, however, that the download for these files may be slow on some computers.  They are large.  Let us hope that this wonderful resource will soon be followed by files for volume 1. 

I also remind readers that since this edition was translated after Sacrosanctum Concilium, 89 (1963), it lacks the Office of Prime.  That office is available in English as part of the Dominican Rite Ordo for 2015, published by Dominican Liturgy Publications.

Dear Father: This edition also lacks the Ordinary and Propers for Pretiosa.

Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P. said...

Yes, I know; it is usually considered as connected to Prime, so I assumed people would know that.

Thank you to Corpus Christi Watershed for doing this. I've been chasing for a copy of this breviary for the longest time and this is the next best thing.

Now if only comeone could re-print the 1962 Dominican breviary. I know a few in my lay Dominican fraternity that would love to get their hands on that as well.
