October 29, 2013 - sound

Here’s an album I recorded and produced for the monks while I was living with them. I turned many of these recordings into ringtones. Gregorian Chant ring tones turn the heads of the ladies.

    Dear Homer,
    I would like to know if the Monks of Norcia use the pre-conciliar “Breviarium monasticum”. In other words: I’ve purchased a “Diurnal monastique” of 1963, is it (for the “diurnal” hours) in compliance with Divine Office of the Monks of Norcia?
    Another question. If you are a benedictine oblate at the Monastery of Norcia, could you tell me what is the way (and the rite) to become oblate there?
    Thank you

      Hi Angelo,

      The monks use an Antiphonale Monasticum following the Solemes order and pagination. This is what the numbers correspond to in the weekly ordo which one of the monks makes for everyone’s convenience.

      The real compliance test is against Benedict’s rule. I’ve never cross-checked, but the Solemes antiphonale likely corresponds to St. Benedict’s rule, especially chapters 17-19. The propers are specific not only to the pre-conciliar publication of the office, but the specifically Benedictine one, which elevates the classes of certain saints and modifies what is said when.

      Contact Br. Anthony (anthony at the-monks-website .org ) about becoming an Oblate. You can read about becoming an Oblate here.

      Cheers, and thanks for reading!
