Here's the website I used for the words: https://www.lobvm.com/hours/roman/1962/office-1/la-en/lauds/ If you're on a mobile phone, click "Settings" to pick Latin if you like.   The Little Office is designed to be sung. Speaking through the words first helps you get the hang of the pronunciation. It's like learning to walk before you run. I have more videos on singing the Little Office.   See: https://littleoffice.brandt.id.au for more details.

This recording completes the collection of recordings for the Little Office outside Easter, Septuagesima, Advent and Christmas. Still a long way to go, but it's a start! More info, as always, see littleoffice.brandt.id.au

M3TD: Matins for most Wednesdays and Saturdays
Matins with some budgie noises - I'm reusing bits, so you may notice striking similarities with the other Matins recordings. Plus I am editing to take out most slip ups, to make it easier to sing along with, but I thought I'd better go on the record as admitting that I make more mistakes in real life than appear on these recordings.

This is a recording of Matins for Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays for most of the year. I've started using these recordings myself, so now I have more incentive to get them all polished up and completed. More info, as always, see littleoffice.brandt.id.au

This is just the Terce recording without my little intro talk. This way it should be accessible as an mp3 and easier for people to link to. God bless, Veronica

I finish with the Solemn Salve Regina - it's optional but encouraged to finish a publicly recited hour with the Marian Antiphon. The video is on YouTube and Rumble. More information: littleoffice.brandt.id.au

Salve Regina - solemn tone
Salve Regina - solemn tone
The Marian Antiphon for most of the year - from Trinity Sunday through to just before the 1st Sunday of Advent. In English this is known as Hail Holy Queen. Some say the Solemn Tone is for feast days and Sundays. I've also heard the Solemn Tone is the proper one and the Simple Tone is a concession for those who need to take it easy. Go with what your superior says and if you're not under a superior, then it's your call which one you sing. More information: littleoffice.brandt.id.au

It's been a while since I recorded Vespers. Hopefully I'll get more practice and more fluent at it. I use the simpler version of the Ave Maris Stella for this one and the solemn tone for the Magnificat. More information: littleoffice.brandt.id.au
