Breviary Hymns


What are Breviary Hymns?



First of all, this is a Breviary:

So in the Breviary, you have the various prayers of the Divine Office (Office of Readings, Morning Prayer, Daytime Prayer, Evening Prayer, Night Prayer). Each of those Hours, as we call them, begins with a hymn.

That’s what Breviary Hymns are.


And heres all the Latin hymns for the LOTH translated into English set to chant; with a lovely introduction by former Cardinal Burke.



Careful, not “former” Cardinal Burke, just Cardinal Burke.
