    Our pastor requested this week that we sing Easter Lauds as part of our livestreamed liturgies. Not having a current copy of the Cantus Ordo, I was wondering if anyone could confirm that these are the correct antiphons?

    I Surrexit Christus et illuxit populo suo

    II Redemptor noster surrexit de sepulchro

    III Crucifixus resurrexit alleluia

    Ben. Vespere autem sabbati (for year A? Or is it now Et valde mane?)

    Many thanks in advance!
  • Franco,
    EF or OF?

    They are correct. The antiphon at the Benedictus should indeed be Et valde mane.

    From the Ordo Cantus Officii, p. 68:
    Hymn: Aurora lucis rutilat (Liber Hymnarius 82)
    Then the three psalm antiphons are as you specified.
    The third one is marked: "Et repetitur infra psalmum."
    The Responsorium brevis is: Haec dies quam fecit Dominus; exsultemus et laetemur in ea.
    The Benedictus antiphon is "Et valde mane..."

    Thank you! Apologies, what is the significance of the marking on the third antiphon?

    "[The third antiphon] is repeated within the psalm."
