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!

*In alteration of the usual penitential scheme of Saturday psalms, the Canticle “Ego dixi” is borrowed from Tuesday; due, no doubt, to it’s appropriateness, i.e. “vadam ad portas inferi”.
