    I was just wondering if anyone on here had a way of getting sheet music for Vespers. Our parish priest has been wanting to offer Vespers for some time now but I am not sure of the best way to get them whether it is online or by a hard copy and I could really use some advice.

    The only official music source for Vespers in the Ordinary Form is the Antiphonale Romanum II (technically derived from the Ordo Cantus Officii, without going into too much detail). It's all Latin Gregorian Chant and only has Sundays and feasts. Does that sound like what you need?

    Download a pdf of Antiphonale Romanum II (2009) here:

    Wait 30 seconds, complete the captcha, then download the file.

    Not complete, but it might have just what you need.

  • If you want EF Vespers, Albert Bloomfeld has a site dedicated to this.

    If MarkB's pdf looks like what you need, the book can be purchased directly from Solesmes here. It is a beautiful volume, I recommend it to all.

    About the pdf: Note that is not the entire volume, only the weekly psalter, de office for the dead and the common tones.
