Greetings

Welcome to the Dominus regnavit blog.

This project is a user-supported endeavor to provide daily recordings of the traditional Divine Office in its Roman secular form, according to the order of the Roman Breviary of 1962, and sung with its chant as found in Pope St. Pius X’s “Vatican Edition” of the Antiphonale Romanum, marked with rhythmic signs by the monks of Solesmes.

This is the Extraordinary Form of the office, which Pope Benedict XVI gave to us anew with the document Summorum Pontificum.

At present, we are posting Lauds daily. Listen to the latest postings below, or see the menu-header for more information.

Thank you for visiting and supporting this project!

Question: when was St. Lawrence of Brindisi added to the calendar?

I do not find this feast in the mutations section of the AR 1949 (which I think are from ’55), but in the rubrics of 1960, he is already on the calendar. Incidentally, it appears that St. Lawrence of Brindisi was declared a doctor of the church in 1959.

Oddity: the Liber Usualis of 1961 gives the collect for St. Lawrence, but not for St. Praxedes. It appears that in order to insert St. Lawrence, they simply took out St. Praxedes, put St. Lawrence in her place, and then were forced to omit St. Praxedes, as there is not room for two collects at this point without re-arranging subsequent pages substantially (i.e., you would have to re-typeset them, which was probably not an option).
