Product Description

The Divine Office, the official prayer of the Church was once seen as the prerogative of the clergy and religious communities. Now it is more readily available to all.

With its wonderful collection of Psalms, antiphons, hymns, readings, intercessions and reflection, it is prayer, intended to sanctify the various moments of the day.

Sr Magdalen Mather, Benedictine and Fr Paul Gurr, Carmelite here present you with the most simple and revered way of chanting the Psalms of Morning and Evening Prayer for the 4 week cycle of the Roman Breviary.

We have chosen the simplest of the Gregorian melodies to help you become familiar with the beauty of the psalms as you become used to the ancient art of simple chanting. We have also sung the hymns for Morning and Evening Prayer in recognizable and beautiful melodies so that you can take part in them more easily and prayerfully.

There are 8 discs in this collection.

Two discs each for Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4 of the Breviary.

For each week:

Disc 1 of each week

Contains the Offices from

Sunday Evening Prayer 1 up to and including

Tuesday Evening Prayer.

 

Disc 2 of each week

Contains the Offices from

Wednesday Morning Prayer up to and including

Saturday Morning Prayer.

 

  • This collection can be used for your own personal prayer time.
  • It can help you to “sing along” as you sing the praises of God.
  • You can pray merely by listening to the psalms.
  • It will be particularly helpful when people gather to pray the Divine Office together.
  • The melodies will quickly be learned after listening to the first couple of lines of each Psalm.
  • It will be obvious after you become familiar with the melodies that they are interchangeable.
