    It's a hymn in Sapphic meter, if that helps.

    Not in Liber.

    You mean not in the Liber Hymnarius?

    It's the Vespers hymn from the Breviarum Monasticum for the feast of St Benedict.

    Note this is set to the 1891 Antiphonal melody, Another melody can be found in the Antiphonal Monasticum 1934.

    hmmm.... i figured it might be in the AM, but don't have that. Is there a digital copy of that anywhere?

    Thanks tomjaw.

    Adam:

    Sorry. Yes. The Liber Usualis.

    The 1891 Liber Antiphonale is online as part of the Lalande Library.
    The 1934 Antiphonale Monasticum is online at CC watershed (in 3 parts)

    I have partially set the Gemma Caelestis to the other Melody, would you like me to complete this sooner rather than later?

    We will use this sat and sun for masses. Would love to see other melody.

    Yes well aware of different books was just clarifying where I looked first.
