Help this Rally grow by simply liking it:
"He who sings, prays twice." As St. Augustine preached on Psalm 72, "He who sings praise, is not only singing, but also loving the one to whom he is singing." Help a friar to sing and pray well by supporting this project!
The Hymnarium O.P. is a hymnal for the Liturgy of the Hours that makes available the Dominican heritage of liturgical hymnody. It is being published by the Liturgical Commission of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph in response to our 2010 Provincial Chapter’s wish that “the Dominican and wider Gregorian Chant traditions in the Conventual Mass and Office” and the desire of the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council that chant “be given pride of place in liturgical services.”
The Hymnarium presents hymns for Sundays and weekdays throughout the year, the Proper of Time, the Proper of Saints (including proper hymns for many Dominican saints), and the Common of Saints. The texts of the Hymnarium are derived from the Breviarium O.P. of 1952 and the Irish Dominican Breviary of 1967. Each hymn is provided in Latin and English versions set to a limited variety of chant melodies that are reused on various occasions throughout the book.
We've met our goal! While we are continuing to receive donations, we will no longer be offering hymnals for any new donations. (Those who donated $25 or more on or before 6 Oct will receive a hymnal) However, all benefactors will be included in the intention for a Mass celebrated at St. Peter's in Rome on 15 Nov 2013.
