Dominican Antiphonal of 1863 Scans Improved

I am happy to announce that the PDF scans of the two volumes of the great Antiphonarium S. Ordinis F. Praedicatorum published in 1863 at the direction of Master of the Order Vincent Jandel, O.P., have now been vastly improved through the hard work of Bro. Corwin Low, O.P., of the Western Dominican Province House of Studies in Oakland. He has my profound gratitude for this project.

These books contain the complete music for the Dominican Office in its medieval form, including the night office with all its long responsories. This is the only printed edition of the complete office ever done.

The pages of the scan are now all clean, straightened, and searchable! And they are now about 1/3 the size of the former scans: about 45 megs each. You may download or consult them at their links at Domincan Liturgy on the left side bar.

And do not forgot the conference and workshops this coming August 5-9 at St. Albert's Priory in Oakland CA:

The Living Tradition: The Dominican Rite in the Twenty-First Century.
