• Toni Capituli et Orationum

    I received a question on how to sing some of the Common parts of the Little Office. In particular, the Capitulum or Little Chapter and the Collect or Prayer.

  • Missing Piece of Vespers

    Someone asked for updated straight through recordings now that Paschaltide is behind us. In the morning I set up in the living room and recorded Matins and Lauds, Prime, Terce and Sext.

This is more a thing with longer chant - like the Gradual at...

  • Video for Vespers

    While the Little Office videos were so popular I put together this one for Vespers.

  • Compline from Long Ago

    Back when I used a Wordpress blog, I uploaded some recordings of my family singing Compline from the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
