First Sunday after the Octave of the Epiphany

This day is known as ‘Domine ne in ira’ from the incipit of the first responsory. It marks the beginning of the post-Christmas or ‘ordinary’ season. Hymns and antiphons are as in the weekly Psalter.

This date marks the beginning of a cyclical reading of the Epistles.

1 Resp. Domine ne in ira tua (after Ps. 6:2-3; 54:6 (Old Roman).)
This week contains a series of Responsories based on Psalms. The Psalms appear in ascending order (with omissions) for Responsories 1 through 8, and continuing with the Responsories for the weekdays, up through to Ps. 101. In each case the texts are taken from the Psalms for Matins of that day. The first Responsory of Wednesday is not taken literally from a Psalm, but retains a Psalm-like character. The Verse is taken from a Psalm.
In this group of Responsories, which appear to be a fairly primitive layer, all 8 modes are represented, but in no particular order. Responsories of the same mode share melodic features. There is a preponderance of Tone V.
According to this plan, RR. 8 and 9 of Sunday appear to be out of place; Responsory 8 takes its text from Psalm 25, associated with Prime, and Responsory 9 takes its text from Ps. 50, associated with Lauds.
Taken as a whole, we may consider this group of Responsories as the ‘ordinary responsories’.

644
2 Resp. Deus qui sedes (after Ps. 9:8-10; 35 (Old Roman).)

3 Resp. A dextris est michi (after Ps. 15:8-9; 1-2)

Septuagesima
Major Privileged Sunday
The Roman Breviary (pre- and post-Tridentine) considers first vespers of Septuagesima to be still of the post-Epiphany season, rather than the pre-Lent season, and thus includes an Alleluya. In ths Sarum Use first vespers of Septuagesima is of the pre-Lent season, with no Alleluya.

Septuagesima marks the beginning of the biblical cycle of the Old Testament, introducing readings from Genesis. While the Responsories, and the Antiphons at the little hours are proper, the antiphons and at Vespers and Matins, and the hymns, continue from before.

736
First Vespers
V. Laus tibi Domine
This versicle takes the place of Alleluya until Easter.
The Anglican Breviary provides a translation that is, perhaps fortuitously, a rhyming couplet: ‘To thee, O Lord, all honour be, King of endless majesty.’

Ant. Voca operarios (after Mat. 20:8)

Ant. Dixit autem paterfamilias (after Mat. 20:13)

Ant. Amice non facio tibi injuriam (after Mat. 20:13)
The first musical phrase of this antiphon is identical with the second phrase of the previous one; the second phrase follows with slight variations; the third phrase continues the replication; all this despite the antiphons being in different modes! This example is instructive of the modal system: the choice of Mode VII for this antiphon permits a successful connection with the incipit beginning on B and ending on D.

Wednesday at the beginning of the Fast
Principal Privileged feria
Beginning this day and carrying through to the Octave of Easter (with the exception of Good Friday), there is a separate Mass for each day; resulting from this is an intensification of the content for the Office. Namely, the Prayers that conclude the Offices now change daily; Lauds and the Little Hours use the Prayer (Collect) of the Mass; on weekdays Vespers repeats the Prayer over the People that concludes the Mass of the day. With the use of different Epistles and Gospels at each Mass, the Benedictus and Magnificat correspondingly take new Antiphons each day.

884
Lectiones. ‘Ante dies devotionum.’
Another translation is available in Basil Ramsey, Sermons of St. Maximus of Turin (Newman Press, 1989), Sermon 66.

886
Ant. Venite benedicti Patris mei. (Mat. 25:34.)

887

During the ferias of Quadragesima the Seven Penitential Psalms are recited in order through the day, within the preces of the hours, as follows:

Hour First Psalm Second Psalm (Penitential)
Lauds Miserere mei (50) Domine ne in furore (6)
Prime Miserere mei (50) Beati quorum (31)
Terce Miserere mei (50) Domine ne in furore (37)
Sext Miserere mei (50) Deus misereatur nostri (66)
None Miserere mei (50) Domine exaudi orationem (101)
Vespers Miserere mei (50) De profundis clamavi (129)
Compline Miserere mei (50) Domine exaudi orationem (142)

In this way the Seven Penitential Psalms pervade all the ferial hours of Lent.

To avoid repetition, Ps. 66 appears as the second Psalm at Sext in place of Ps. 50. Seeing that all the other psalms have a penitential character, Ps. 66 seems a surprising choice to fill the space at Sext.

If a Feast observed in Lent has First Vespers, then Vespers and Compline no longer take this ferial form; in order to complete the seven penitential psalms for the day, None will include Pss. 50 and 101, as well as Pss. 129, and 142 omitted from Vespers and Compline.  This also holds true for Saturdays in Quadragesima.

Ant. Vivo ego dicit Dominus. (after Ezech. 33:11.)

888
Ant. Per arma justicie. (after 2 Cor. 6:4, 7.)

Concerning the Fifteen Gradual Psalms and the Litany
‘Hic nunquam dicitur ps. Laudáte Dóminum in sanctis. (150) post psalmum Ecce nunc. (133)’ This appears to be a reminder: ‘Because the daily portion of the Psalter assigned to the prebend of Lyme is “Ps. Laudate Dominum in sanctis eius, cum Letania”, the connection between that psalm and the litany may have become ingrained, requiring this monitory rubric.  See Christopher Wordsworth, Ceremonies and Processions (1901):132.’ — John Hackney, private correspondence, May 8, 2018.

Praise one God in Persons three.

Thursday in Holy Week

The Sarum Offices of Matins and Lauds for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, appear complete in English translation with music in G. H. Palmer, The Order of Tenebrae (Wantage: S. Mary’s Convent, 1956).

There is no indication in the Sarum sources that Matins and Lauds of these three days are to be said on the eve.  However, at Ottery St. Mary tenebrae services were on the eve, for the benefit of the parishioners: ‘Item statuimus quod matutine . . . tribus diebus ante pascha de sero, propter parochianos . . . decantentur.’  (Ottery St. Mary Statutes: 135.)  ‘sero’ (evening) probably implies after sundown.

‘. . . quia totidem candele . . . ‘  9 antiphons and 9 responsories at matins; 6 antiphons at lauds; total 24.

1163
1 Ant. Zelus domus tue (Ps. 68:10 (Gallican).)

2 Ant. Avertantur retrorsum (Ps. 69:4 (Old Roman).)

3 Ant. Deus meus eripe me (Ps. 70:4)

1164
V. Exurge Domine (cf. Ps. 73:22, 42:1)

Lesson 1.
The Solesmes Edition (LU:631) sets the title of the Lesson to music: ‘Incipit Lamentatio Jeremie Prophete’. It would appear that in the Sarum tradition the title is neither sung nor said.
The Tone of the Lamentation is a variant of the Psalm-Tone of Mode I. The Hebrew letters are set to the Tone-ending as a melisma. The Tone itself uses the intonation on every verse (. .), and also after the mediation–unless the brevity of the line prohibits it. The mediation, of two accents, is more elaborate than the normal Sarum mediation for Tone I; it differs from the Solesmes version in including a preparatory note, G (.). An additional syllables after the first accent (^) will be on A; an additional syllable after the second accent will be on G. The ending is of one accent with two preparatory notes, G.F (. .). An additional syllable after the accent will be on F.
(The Solesmes form provides two endings, one for intermediary sentence endings, and one for the final ending of each ‘Letter-paragraph’.)

The Roman tradition has more lengthy readings from the Lamentation on this and the following two days.

In BL-52359:140r. ff. the lessons from Lamentation are as follows:

Thursday (1)  Lam. 1:1-3, (2) Lam. 1:4-5, (3) Lam. 1:6-7 (end ‘auxiliator’).

Friday (1) Lam. 1:10-12, (2) Lam. 1:13-14, (3) Lam. 1:15-18 (end ‘dolorem meum’).

Saturday (1) Lam. 2:13-15 (end ‘Jerusalem’), (2) Lam 2:17-18, (3) Lam. 2:21-22, 3:4.

1165
Hierusalem, Hierusalem
This Verse is the Lector’s conclusion to the reading; it is not sung as a choral response in the Sarum (or Roman) tradition. Note that in this case the mediation omits it’s preparatory note, and that the final syllable of the verse has in effect a ‘neuma’.

Matins on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week contain nine Responsories each day. The Sarum and Hereford Uses contain the same 27 Responsories, but with different orders; the York Use omits from this series ‘Judas mercator’ and adds ‘Eram quasi agnus’. the following table shows the varying order of responsories on these three days in the Uses of Sarum, York, and Hereford. For convenience, the Sarum Use is given as the standard, and its Responsories listed in order T1 through T9 (Thursday), and so on for Friday and Saturday. The locations where sources are in agreement are given in bold. Where Responsory Verses differ, they are indicated.

At Vespers

Vespers on Holy Saturday is in effect first vespers if Easter.
Seeing that the Easter Vigil takes place after None, the end of the Vigil Mass is united with an abbreviated Vespers, and the two end together. The Vigil then concludes with Compline. This pattern is retained in the Breviarium Romanum 1568.

In the 1951-56 Roman reform of Holy Week the Easter Vigil begins later, some time after Vespers (Compline is not said). (This Vespers is thus not part of the Medieval Office.) The end of the Vigil Mass is united with an abbreviated Lauds, and the two end together. There is thus no Matins on Easter Day, the several Readings and Canticles (Tracts) of the Vigil standing in for of those of Matins.

1228
Easter Sunday
Principal Double Feast with Quadruple Invitatory, with Four Rulers of the Choir from the Superior Grade plus the Cantor.

Elevatio
The elevatio at Sarum took place very early in the morning, before Matins. According to Young, the elevatio at Durham Cathedral was ‘betweene 3 and 4 of the clocke in the morninge’. (Karl Young, The Drama of the Medieval Church I:138. (J.T. Fowler, ed., Rites of Durham, Durham: Surtees Society, Vol. 107:12-13.))

The elevatio is in fact a procession; it appears in the Sarum Processionals.

In places with more extensive use of liturgical drama, the elevatio might be preceded by the ‘descensus’, representing Jesus’ liberation of souls from hell (the harrowing of hell).  Likewise the ‘visitatio’ might follow.  See for example, Anne Bagnall Yardley and Jesse D. Mann, ‘The Liturgical Dramas for Holy Week at Barking Abbey’, Medieval Feminist Forum, Subsidia Series III (2014): 1-39.  The ‘Prohemium’ of this source (p. 18) indicates that Lady Catherine of Sutton (Abbess 1358-1376) decreed that the decensus-elevatio-visitatio was to to take place after the third responsory of Matins, that is, between Matins and Lauds, to stimulate the devotion of the faithful–that is, to encourage attendance.

The Easter Sepulchre was normally placed on the north wall of the Chancel, near the Altar, as they appear in Salisbury and Lincoln Cathedrals, and in a number parish churches.

Tunc duo excellentiores presbyteri accedant . . .‘  .

Ant. Christus resurgens (Rom. 6: 9-10)

1229

V. Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro

Prayer. Deus qui pro nobis Filium tuum crucis patibulum

This versicle and prayer also appear at lauds, and at sext, and at the procession after vespers this day.

‘ . . .eat processio per ostium australe . . .’  The Body of the Lord is first placed in a pyx, and the pyx is suspended within the tabernacle.  Although not directly indicated here, the pyx/tabernacle would normally be suspended above the high altar.   The clerks exit the chancel through the south doorway in procession with the two officiating priests.  The procession the advances westwards to the great transept, and northward to the crossing, and re-enters the chancel through the western doorway.  The procession continues through the Quire, but turns left and exits through the north doorway, and continues to an altar on the north side. (Pearson, The Sarum Missal: 174, suggests the Altar of St. Martin, the most northerly altar in the smaller eastern transept, in a continuous northerly direction from the north doorway of the chancel.)  This action takes place while the Antiphon and Verse are being sung.

The rubrics in Risby:37v. are less detailed in terms of the specifics of the procession.  These rubric make clear that the first action is removing the Body of the Lord to the high altar, following which the Cross is taken to the place provided for it.

1230

‘. . . dominicali tono . . .‘  This would be the tone that appears on Advent I in the Processionale: ‘Oremus” inflects C-A, the prayer concludes C-F (or C-A-B for a final accented syllable).

1231

Psalms in Easter-tide
During Easter-tide the Psalmody at Matins and Prime is reduced in quantity by redistribution, so that in principle the Matins Psalmody is cycled once in the season rather than once in a week. Generally speaking the normal Sunday Psalms (1-20) and those omitted from Prime in Easter-tide (22, 23, 25) are redistributed (in order) through Matins of Easter Week. The following Sundays all take the same Psalms as Easter Sunday (1-3). However the week-days begin to cycle through their respective Psalms so that only three of the twelve Psalms normally sung on a ferial Matins are sung on a feria in Easter-tide. Saturdays begin to take up the Commemoration of Mary. As we move into the final days before the Ascension, Monday and Wednesday begin to repeat their cycles from before, but Tuesday takes the Office of the Blessed Virgin. The relevant rubrics appear at first on each day, but beginning on Monday after the Second Sunday after Easter the rubrics are grouped together, p. 1385. The rubric concerning the Commemoration of Saint Mary on Tuesday before the Ascension appears on p. 1444, just before the beginning of Feria iij.
The Dominican Breviary 1492 (with minor differences), follows the same pattern.

It will be noted that the plan in the Breviarium Romanum 1529 and 1568 is different: during Easter-week Psalms 1-3 are sung each day at Matins. Then the Psalmody reverts to the pattern found outside Easter-tide.

Ant. Et respicientes (Mark 16: 4)
This antiphon is used for the Memorial of Easter at Vespers in Eastertide.  Its text is taken from the Gospel of Easter day.

1248

Prayer. Concede quesumus omnipotens Deus : ut qui resurrectionis

This prayer is not commonly found, but it does appear in the Leofric Missal.

Procession to the Font

Ant. Alleluya iii.

Ps. Laudate pueri Dominum (Ps. 112)

This unique psalm-tone is an elaborated form of Tone II, with a different mediation.  Only the first alleluya is repeated after each verse; the full antiphon is repeated at the end.

The procession exits the south door of the chancel and continues westward along the south aisle of the nave.  It should be noted that in olden times there was no break in the continual plinth of the nave columns until the final column before the western wall is reached.  Thus the procession would have to continue almost to the extreme west of the nave before turning north into the central aisle, and then turning eastward to approach the font.  Thus the officiant would approach the western step of the font.

1251

Alleluya. Laudate pueri Dominum

1251

V. Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro

Prayer. Presta quesumus omnipotens Deus : ut qui in resurrectionis

This prayer is not widely found.

The procession then continues eastward along the central aisle of the nave to the Rood, which was located to the west of the pulpitum.

Ant. Alleluya

Ps. 113. In exitu

This psalm also has a unique psalm-tone.  the first part is like a transposed and elaborated form of tonus peregrinus–which in itself is of note, seeing that tonus peregrinus is commonly used with psalm 113.  The latter half of the tone, however, follows the pattern of tone III.iv transposed. Nevertheless it retains the accentual pattern used in tonus peregrinus.  Thus in singing this unique psalm-tone the singers can confidently employ the familiar inflections that are well known from singing psalm 113 to tonus peregrinus.  Also connected with tonus peregrinus is the fact that this tone has different reciting notes for each half–albeit here the second part has a higher reciting tone, whereas in tonus peregrinus the second part has a lower reciting tone.

Postea rectores chori incipiant . . .‘  This would be the Rulers of the Choir on the duty side only.

Like the previous psalm, each verse concludes with alleluya from the antiphon.

1257

Hic thurificat sacerdos crucifixum.’  Palmer, The Order of Vespers: 191, places this rubric one verse earlier.  He refers to it as ‘the Rood’, not ‘the Crucifix’.

1258

V. Dicite in nationibus

Clearly this versicle is an expression of the image of the rood before which the procession is standing.

Prayer. Deus qui pro nobis Filium tuum crucis patibulum

This prayer also appears at the elevatio before matins this day.

The procession then continues, entering the chancel through the western doorway in the usual manner.

V. Sancta Dei genitrix

Prayer. Gratiam tuam quesumus Domnine mentibus nostris infunde

1259

‘[Processio eat ad fontes ut in processionali.]’  This rubric from the Antiphonale is a reminder that the small, portable processional books would be used for the procession.

Compline

As indicated clearly in the Psalter, throughout this week, Compline begins not with ‘Converte nos’, but with ‘Deus in adjutorium’.

Non dicuntur benedictiones . . . ‘ ‘Benedictione perpetua’ and the two that follow (i. e. those that pertain to the first nocturn when there are three nocturns) are said on the first and third ferias, and so on; ‘Omnipotens Dominus’ and the two that follow (I. e. those that pertain to the second nocturn) are said on the second and fourth ferias, and so on.  The reason why the benedictions of the third nocturn without exposition of the Gospel (‘Creator omnium rerum’, ‘Divinum auxilium’, and ‘In unitate Sancti Spiritus’) are not used here, so as to make a cycle of three days, is not immediately apparent.
