Latin Compline with Dominican Elements Booklet Now Available


I am pleased to announce that Dominican Liturgy Publications has now published a convenient booklet with the complete text of Compline from the Liturgia Horarum (Liturgy of the Hours) furnished with all the elements from the traditional Dominican Rite that were approved for use with the Proprium Officiorum Ordinis Prædicatorum: Liturgia Horarum (Romæ: Ad S. Sabinæ, 1982).

The Compline section of this Proprium was published as a pamphlet but only contained the Psalm and short reading for Compline after Sunday Second Vespers.  And that pamphlet has long been out of print.  This new edition contains the Psalms and readings for the entire week. It is a pocket-sized paperback and inexpensive. See or order it at Dominican Liturgy Publications.

If you want the same texts with all the Dominican chant music, do not order this item. Order this one or this one instead.

Dominican Rite Solemn Masses in Portland OR

Dominican Low Mass at Holy Rosary
I would like to call the attention of the our readers in the Portland OR area to three up-coming Solemn Masses according to the traditional Dominican Rite.  They will all be at Holy Rosary Church, 375 N.E. Clackamas Street, Portland, OR 97232.  Holy Rosary is also a Priory of the Western Dominican Province.  The Masses will be:

Solemn Mass of the Ascension of the Lord, Thursday, May 25, 7:00 p.m.

Solemn Requiem Mass for Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 7:00 p.m

Solemn Mass of Pentecost, Sunday, June 4, 11:00 a.m.

Holy Rosary has a Dominican Rite Missa cantata every Sunday at 11 a.m., but on account of the feast that of Sunday, June 4, will be solemn.  Music for all the Masses will be provided by the well-known schola Cantores in Ecclesia.
