Traditional Dominican Rite Compline with Music Reprinted

This Completorii Libellus iuxta Ritum Sacri Ordinis Praedicatorum of 1957 was the last publication of Dominican Rite Compline with all the Dominican Gregorian music. It was published at the order of Master General Michael Browne. Dominican Liturgy Publications has now produced a reprint edition  of this book.

Those using this book according to the 1962 rubrics need only sing the entire antiphon at the beginning as well as the end of each psalm or canticle. This book is paperback, has red rubrics and generous gutter margins, making it inexpensive and suitable for personal use. Although it is a photographic reprint the quality is quite good, but you should check the preview before ordering.  A hardback version for choir use is planned.

If you are looking for Compline according to the modern Liturgy of the Hours, with approved Dominican elements, also in Dominican chant, you should go here.

Dominican Rite Ordo for 2019 Available

I am pleased to announce that through the courtesy of Breviarium S.O.P. a Dominican Rite Ordo for 2019 is now available at Dominican Liturgy Publications. This Ordo is intended for use by anyone who prays the 1962 Dominican Rite Breviary. It includes a complete calendar for the Dominican Rite liturgical year for 2019.

In addition, it includes the collect prayers for the Dominican blesseds who are not on the Dominican general calendar (so that a votive commemoration can be made of their feast), obits of the deceased Masters General, and announcements of days when Dominican Tertiaries (Lay Dominicans) can obtain plenary indulgences.

Finally, it contains an English translation of the Office of Prime, which was omitted from the 1967 English translation of the Dominican Breviary. This edition also includes prayers for the coming General Chapter in Vietnam and those for the 15 Tuesdays devotion to St. Dominic.

I also remind readers that a simple Dominican Rite calendar for 2019 is available on our left side bar.

Dominican Rite Matins Music Republished

I am pleased to announce that the Matutinum; seu, Antiphonarium S. Ord. Praed. pro Nocturnis Horis Majorum Solemnitatum has been republished by Dominican Liturgy Publications.

This small hardback book contains the Dominican Chant music for Matins of the major solemnities of the year.  It is a photographic reprint of the original, which was published at the order of the Master General Stanisllaus Gillet, O.P., in 1939.  It does not contain the music for Lauds or the day offices. These are found in the Antiphonarium S.O.P. published in 1933, which can be downloaded in PDF on the left sidebar.

Those interested in purchasing this book should first check the preview to make sure the quality of the reproduction meets their needs.  To order click here.
