Our monastery has produced a Psalterium for the day hours of the Benedictine Office.
It is organised around the Antiphonale Monasticum produced by the Abbey of Solesmes in 1934, according to the traditional distribution of the psalms described by St Benedict in his Holy Rule.
This Psalterium is designed to be sung. Every psalm is univerally pointed for singing all 8 Modes, together with the common 39 endings, the tonus peregrinus and tonus irregularis. The psalms appear as they occur in the Antiphonale and the page refence of the Antiphonale is given at the top of each page.
