This is the first ever edition that includes the complete Gregorian Chant for the Little Office – in traditional four stave notation! The music for the Little Office has never before been gathered together in one volume. For many people the Gregorian chant of the Little Office offers an introduction to the beauty of the Church’s traditional liturgical heritage. This volume will help you sing all the Hours of the Little Office. This edition includes a commentary on the rubrics and ceremonial by “A Master of Novices” (which was first published in the early twentieth century), and also includes a description of the indulgences with which the recitation of the Little Office has been enriched by Holy Mother Church.
All Catholics are called to a consistent prayer life. For those who do not feel called to recite the Divine Office, but still wish to participate in the liturgical prayer of the Church, or for those who have a particular devotion to the holy Mother of God, there is no finer form of prayer than the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Features include: Based on an edition published just after the Reform Act in 1850 (allowing English Catholics to openly practice the Faith); English translation uses traditional language – with scripture taken from Bishop Challoner’s version of the Douay-Rheims Bible; Fully updated to comply with the editio typica of the Breviary (1961) permitted by the Holy Father’s Motu Proprio 'Summorum Pontificum'; The first ever edition to include the complete Gregorian chants for the Little Office; Meditations before each hour from the mediaeval Mirror of Our Lady; Preface by the Very Reverend Fr. Berg, superior of the FSSP; Latin-English, red and black text; Psalms from the Vulgate; Flexible leather cover with stitched edge, gold gilding, 2 ribbons. Pages: 236 Size: 4" x 6"
“It is timely that this edition has been made available within a few weeks of Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio 'Summorum Pontificum', which permits a wider use of the traditional Roman Breviary”. Fr. Berg, Superior of the FSSP (from his preface)
