December 8: Conception of Blessed Mary
Frere (Graduale Sarisburiense, xxix.) places the general establishment of this Feast in the 11th century. This would align with the re-invigoration of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin at Chartres in the same era. See Margot Fassler, ‘Mary’s Nativity, Fulbert of Chartres, and the Stirps Jesse: Liturgical Innovation circa 1000 and Its Afterlife’ Speculum LXXV (2000):389-434.
However, this Feast does not appear in the ‘Old Ordinal’ (The Use of Sarum II:106; 177), nor in the Arsenal or Bologna sources of The Sarum Missal Edited from Three Early Manuscripts: 235.  It appears in Rylands-24:370 only as an addition to the title of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin.  In the Kalendar of The Sarum Missal (xxxii), the entry indicates ‘Conceptio sancte marie.  ix. lec.  Sarum nichil.’  Presumably the introduction of this Feast as a separate entity in the Sarum books coincided with the broader dissemination made possible through printing in the late 15th. century.
The texts, with the exception of the Sequence, are taken from the Feast of the Nativity of Blessed Mary, September 8.
The York Use borrows the same texts from the Nativity, including also the Sequence, ‘Alle celeste’.
The Roman missals generally have different texts, presumably reflecting the initiatives of Popes Sixtus IV, Pius V, and Pius IX.
The Dominican Missal (Venice: Herzog, 1494) omits this Feast entirely, perhaps due to the teachings of Thomas Aquinas, himself a Dominican.

Officium. Gaudeamus omnes in Domino

{23}
Prayer. Supplicationem servorum tuorum.
Most Roman missals have ‘Deus qui per immaculatam Virginis’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Famulis tuis quesumus Domine’.

Alleluya. Conceptio gloriose virginis

{24}
Sequence. Dies iste celebretur
Attr. Adam of St. Victor.
This Sequence replaced the earlier sequence ‘Alle celeste’, which was borrowed from the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin.
According to AH-54180. The three stanzas beginning ‘Quod’, ‘Triste’ and ‘Omnis’ appear to be a later addition to the text.  This is borne out by the variation in length of line here.
While the sequence is in the Victorine style, its layout of verses does not perfectly match any of the other Victorine sequences of the Sarum repertoire; no Sarum musical setting has been found thus far–but Chris MaAvoy provides the melody on Musica Sacra Forum, December, 2019.
Tr. Athanasius Diedrich Wakerbarth, Lyra Ecclesiastica II (London: J. Bohn, 1843): 29.  This version includes additional text after ‘vere plena gaudio’: ‘Quod precessit in figura,/Nube latet sub obscura,/ Hoc declarat genitura/Pie Matris.  Virgo pura/Pariendi vertit jura, Fusa, mirante natura,/Deitatis pluvia.’  A prose translation appears in Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year: Advent 2nd. ed. (Dublin: James Duffy, 1870):428.

The Alleluya and sequence can be transposed down a major second or minor third.

If the sequence ‘Alle celeste necnon’ is used, both the Alleluya and sequence can be transposed down a perfect fourth.

{25}
Secret. Unigeniti tui Domine
The Roman Missal (1500 and 1543) has ‘Suscipe digneris per temetipsum’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Unigeniti tui Domine’.
The Liber Usualis and modern Roman Missal have ‘Salutarem hostiam’.

{26}
Postcommunion. Sumpsimus Domine celebritatis
The Roman Missal (1500 and 1543) has ‘Odorem Domine sacrificii hujus’.
The Roman Missal (1744) has ‘Sumpsimus Domine celebritatis’.
The Liber Usualis and modern Roman Missal have ‘Sacramenta quae sumpsimus’.

{27}
December 13: Saint Lucy
Prayer. Exaudi nos Deus salutaris noster : ut sicut de beate Lucie

Secret. Gratanter Domine quesumus
The Roman Missal (1500 and 1543) has ‘Accepta tibi sit’.

{28}
Postcommunion. Lucie virginis et martyris
The Roman missals have ‘Satiasti Domine familiam tuam’.

March 2: St. Chad, bishop and confessor

While the 1531 Breviary contains the Office of the Feast of the Translation of St. Chad for Lichfield Catherdral (Psalter: A-15:[521]), the Mass for the Translation of St. Chad does not appear in the Missals.  For the Mass of the Translation of St. Chad it would be appropriate to use the Mass for the Feast of St. Chad, but with the prayer ‘Deus qui nobis translationem’ from the Breviary; the first Alleluya from pages [111]-[114] and the second Alleluya from 817-821.  In the absence of a proper sequence for St. Chad, one of those on [115]-[117] would be suitable.

{117}
March 17: St. Patrick, bishop and confessor

The fact that St. Patrick’s Mass appears out of order in most of the printed missals is a good indication that it was a later addition.  It may have been added in order to make the Sarum Rite more suitable for the Irish Church.   Hugh Jackson Lawlor ed., The Rosslyn Missal (London: Harrison and Sons, 1899): 153 ff.

Prayer. Da quesumus omnipotens Deus : ut beati Patricii

The Hereford Use has the sequence ‘Mittit ad virginem’; the York Use has ‘Virgini Marie’.

{129}

The Sequence does not appear in the earlier Sarum books; the Tract does not appear in the printed Graduals. It appears that the tract was originally sung (in Lent), but at a later stage the Sequence was sung in its place while the ministers recite the Tract privately.

Officium. Gaudeamus omnes
The basis of this text is used for a number of Saints, especially Thomas Becket, and Feasts of the Virgin. The Sarum sources provide no music for this particular text, but it should obviously use the same music as provided for the Feast of the Assumption. This is provided in the Appendix.

{273}

July 18: St. Arnulph, bishop and martyr
As the Companion to the Kalendar indicates, two different saints seem to be confounded here, the first a martyr but not a bishop; the second a bishop but not a martyr.  Suggested emendations of the prayers appear below, adapting them as appropriate to the two saints.  (It seems most likely that the martyr was originally intended.)

Prayer. Adesto supplicationibus nostris omnipotens Deus
For St. Arnoul, the martyr: omit ‘atque pontifice’.
For St. Arnulph, the bishop: replace ‘martyre tuo atque pontifice’ with ‘pontifice tuo’.

Secret. Santi martyris tui atque pontificis
For St. Arnoul, the martyr: omit ‘atque pontificis’.
For St. Arnulph, the bishop: replace ‘martyris tui atque pontificis’ with ‘pontificis tui’.

Prayer. Omnipotens sempiterne Deus qui hujus die jocundam

Secret. Munera quesumus Domine que in sancti Oswaldi

{322}
Postcommunion. Vitali alimonia recreati

Blessed Mary of the Snow.  While this late office appears in the Breviary, nothing of it appears in the missals.  Based on the collect, Concede nos famulos tuos, the most suitable choice for the mass of this feast would be Salva sancta parens [248], despite the rubric on that page, which states that it is not to be used on feasts–the reason of course is that all the other feasts of the Virgin have proper masses.  A sequence could be selected from among those for the blessed Virgin, such as Post partum virgo Maria, Ave Maria gratia plena, Hodierne lux diei, Ave preclara maris stella, or Alle celeste.

A collect for St. Dominic appears in the Breviary, but the feast itself is ‘non-Sarum’.  Typically a memorial would be made, depending upon the circumstances.  If a mass of St. Dominic were made according to the Use of Sarum, it would be from the Common of Confessors.  Of course propers for St. Dominic appear in Dominican books.

{323}
August 6: The Transfiguration
As a late medieval feast (1457), this feast borrows its propers from elsewhere in the Gradual, mainly Christmas.  In the Roman Rite the selection of chants is completely different (see LU: 1585 for details).  Again, in the Dominican Rite only the Offertory is the same as in the Roman order.

Officium. Veni et ostende (Saturday in the Ember Days of Advent)

Officium. In excelso throno (Sunday after Octave of Epiphany.)

This is only instance of which I am aware in which  the Sarum sources provide different selections, the former in the Missal, the latter in the Gradual.

Prayer. Deus qui hodierna die unigenitum tuum mirabiliter transfiguratum

{325}

August 7: The Most Sweet Name of Jesus
See E. G. Cuthbert F. Atchley, ‘Jesus Mass and Anthem.’ Transactions of the St. Paul’s Ecclesiological Society V (1905): 163-169.

See Richard Pfaff, ‘The Feast of the Name of Jesus’, New Liturgical Feasts in Later Medieval England (London: Oxford University Press, 1970).

‘The Office and Mass composed by Bernardine dei Busti (d. 1500) were approved by Sixtus IV.’, (Holweck, Frederick. “Feast of the Holy Name.” The Catholic Encyclopedia. VII. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1910. 8 Aug. 2017 <http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07420a.htm>).

In a currently unknown manuscript missal is the following note: “Friday.  On the nineteenth day of July, in the year of our Lord Christ 1409, Robert the Bishop, in his own sacred Castle of Scireburn (Sherborne) granted to all who have truly confessed and are contrite, who say or hear on a Friday the Mass of the Name of Jesus Christ, forty days indulgence as often as they shall say or hear it.  This indulgence shall last through all time.’ William Robert Brownlow,  ‘Notes on a Ms. Copy of the Sarum Missal’, The Downside Review XIII (July 1894): 135.  On the other hand, in the York Missal  II (Surtees): 216, the following indulgence is indicated: ‘Quicunque hancmissam de Nomine Jesu devote celebraverit, vel celebrari fecerit, vel audierit, habebit pro qualibet missa tria millia annorum indulgentie a domino papa Bonifacio quarto (608-614); et Robert Hallam, episcopus Salsberiensis in castello suo de Scheruburn, XIX die mensis Julii anno Domini MCCCCXI., concessit omnibus vere contritis et confessis xl. dies indulgentie totiens quotiens, perpetuis termporibus duraturos.–MS. E.’  Robert Hallam was bishop of Salisbury 1407-1417; it does appear that Sheborne Castle did belong to the Bishop of Salisbury since the time of Robert de Caen (Roger of Salisbury, Roger le Poer, d. 1139.  (Not to be confused with Robert Sherborne, Bishop of Chichester 1508-36.  Sheborne Castle belonged to the Bishops of Salisbury since the time of Robert de Caen (Roger of Salisbury, Roger le Poer, d. 1139.

New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1910. 8 Aug. 2017 <http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07420a.htm>).  Richard Pfaff, however, notes that this sequence is English in origin:  New Liturgical Feasts in Later Medieval England (Oxford, 1970):67-68.

{345}
Divisio. Jesus pulcher in decore

{348}
Sequence. Dulcis Jesu memoria
Attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux, this is a portion of the hymn, ‘Jesu dulcis memoria’, and known as the Rosy Sequence.  It comprises the first 7 and last 2 of the 42 stanzas of the complete poem.  The same poem is the basis of the hymn, Jesu dulcis memoria for this day (Brev.:{1055}), both of which share the first five stanzas–in slightly different versions.
This sequence is actually formed of Ambrosian stanzas, 8 8 8 8.

Offertory Verse. Beata es virgo Maria.

Frere lists an Offertory, Beata es, Mode VIII, for the B. V. M. apparently contained in Bodleian Rawl. Liturg. d 3, an early 13th c. Gradual.  (Frere, Graduales Sarisburiense:lxxxiv.).  This is most likely the same as this Offertory Verse.

It should be noted that the Offertory g00277, which appears in only one source in CANTUS, P-Ln Iluminado 084 is likely the same chant as the Offertory Verse g01421a, which appears in two CANTUS sources, E-Sau Ms 2637:209v. and CH-P 28:329.   In fact g00277 is identified as ‘similar’ to g01421a in CANTUS.

August 15: Assumption of Blessed Mary

The image is of the death of the Virgin Mary with eleven apostles gathered around her bed. According to The Golden Legend, the one holding the palm branch would be John. Paul would be present among the apostles. Peter would presumably be the one in the centre holding the book. He appears to be sprinkling Mary with water; thus the image appears to reflect to some extent the medieval practice of the ‘last rites’. It appears that according to some traditions Thomas was not present, and that Paul was present rather than Mathias. There appears to be a candlestick in the upper left; women are observing from the doorway in the upper right.

Sequences within the Octave:

It would appear that in the older tradition the single sequence ‘Area virga’ was sung daily throughout the octave. (Rylands-24:365; Sherbrooke:560).  However, in the Rylands-24 Sequentiarium the following are given (494-497): Aug. 15: Area virga; Aug. 16: Ave mundi spes; Aug 17: Post partum; Aug 18: Ave Maria gratia; Aug 19?: Letabundus; Aug 21?: Hodierna lux; Aug. 22: Missus Gabriel.
