New book: The Divine Office Hymnal
This pocket-sized book contains English translations of the traditional Latin hymns of the Roman Breviary. It contains four sections:
- The Hymns of the Psalter
- The Proper of the Season
- The Common of Saints
- The Proper of Saints
It is designed to act as a supplement to the English edition of the Divine Office, and is small enough to be carried easily with a breviary, but can also be used as a hymn book in its own right.
It is no simple task to narrow the selection of hymns from all of the excellent translations available, but it is hoped that most of the favourite and well-known translations are included. Among the list of translators are Rev. John Mason Neale, Fr Edward Caswall (of the Birmingham Oratory), Mgr Ronald Knox, as well as many others.
It is available to buy from Lulu.
