This volume contains the Office of
for every day of the year, in Latin and English, according to the
novus ordo of the Roman Catholic Church, with Gregorian Chant settings. On the
facing pages for the Latin, the official English text is also arranged for
chanting, using simple English tones. New translations have been made for the
official hymns of the Office, and all the hymns are given with the Gregorian
melodies proper for each season and feast of the liturgical year.

This book
will find a welcome in parishes, cathedrals, religious communities and
seminaries, as well as families, all who wish to pray together at the end of
the day.

Complete instructions are given for praying Compline. The Foreword by
Archbishop Raymond Burke explains the rich spiritual tradition of prayer at the
close of day, and provides an inspiring meditation on the texts and meaning of
the Office of Compline.

The scriptures give only one command concerning the
frequency of prayer: pray without ceasing (Lk 18:1; 1 Thess 5:17). This volume
will prove to be a welcome companion to all who are seeking to make a full
response to the Gospel, and persevere in unceasing prayer.

The editor, Fr. Samuel Weber, is a Benedictine priest and monk of the Archabbey of Saint Meinrad and is the Director of the Institute of Sacred Music in the Archdiocese of Saint Louis
