Ordo Hebdomadae Sanctae 1961
  • I was wondering if the Ordo Hebdomadae Sanctae, editio cum cantu gregoriano 1961was available anywhere in PDF.
  • Monastic version HERE.

    There are a couple of fairly inexpensive Holy Week books available.

    One from Barroux is excerpted from the relevant Solesmes editions, so it may have been drawn from the OHS -- alas, I can't find my copy!

  • Thanks Jonathan. I'm after the Roman version.

    Thanks Chonak. I'm familiar with the book from Le Barroux. It is a little different from the Ordo Hebdomadae Sanctae 1961. Had a copy of the OHS 1961, but did the silly thing of lending it out without making note to whom I lent it to.
  • Why not simply extract the relevant pages from the Liber usualis PDF? Is this the same book?

  • Thanks Madorganist. The OHS has all the sung parts not just those for the choir but also the priests parts.

    It was such a nifty book with everything in it.
    Thanked by 2madorganist CHGiffen

    I have a copy of the 1957 OHS... cum cantu; is that the same as the 1961 version?
  • I couldn't imagine there would be much of a difference between the 57 and 61. Unless it uses the Bea Psalter.
  • Does the '57 interpolate Vespers or Lauds after Communion at the Easter Vigil?

    In the 1957 book, Lauds follows the reception of Holy Communion. After the Canticle of Zechariah, the Postcommunion prayer follows; then the dismissal and blessing. The Last Gospel is omitted, and the ministers return to the sacristy.

    Afterward, the Office of the day begins with Prime.

    The book uses the "novo psalterio"; does the '61?
