Compline in Dominican Chant Published

I am pleased to announce that the booklet

Ad Completorium secundum Usum Ordinis Praedicatorum

containing the office of Compline from the Liturgia Horarum in Dominican Gregorian chant, is now available at This booklet contains all the music needed to sing Compline thoughout the entire liturgical year.

The music has been carefully reset from authentic sources and published chant books of the Dominican Order. The psalms have been pointed for singing, and additional chants approved for use by the Dominican Order in the Proprium Ordinis Praedicatorum (1982) are all included. A preview of the book can be seen at the sales page, just click "preview" below the image of the cover. The price is $8.20 a copy, with a discount of 4% or more on orders of 15 or more copies, free shipping is available on orders of more than 3 copies.

This economical edition is printed in black and white, condensed to 88 pages, and bound in saddle-stitched paper. A hard-back version, with red and black printing, and including music for the Nunc Dimittis on various memorials of Dominican saints (omitted due to space constraints), will appear shortly. Any profit on these books will go to support the Western Dominican Province House of Studies at Saint Albert the Great Priory in Oakland, California. An electronic version may be downloaded for free on the left side bar at Dominican Liturgy.
