Trinity
Major Double Feast
Thomas Becket’s first act after his consecration as Archbishop of Canterbury on the Sunday after Pentecost, 1162 was to ordain that the day of his consecration be held as a festival in honour of the Holy Trinity. This observance spread from Canterbury throughout the whole of western Christendom. Pope John XXII extended this observance to the whole of the Western Church 1334.

The image (from the Breviary, 1531) represents heaven and earth. The text is excerpted from the ‘Te Deum’. The upper portion features the Father and the Son with a dove representing the Holy Spirit.  It would appear that the Father and Son are holding an open book, possibly representing the Law.  Surrounding the Godhead are angels and the heavenly host. In the lower portion the Church is portrayed as the portal of heaven, to which clergy (on the left, led by a pope and bishops) and lay (on the right, led by a king and nobles) are flocking in attitudes of prayer.

The Office was composed by Stephen of Liège (850-920).
It would seem that this office was celebrated by the Anglo-Saxon Church by the early 11th century. (Barbara C. Raw, ‘The Office of the Trinity in the Crowland Psalter’ Anglo Saxon England XXVIII (1999): 185-186. (Note that Barbara Raw casts doubt that this is the in fact the office composed by Stephen of Liege (p. 187).)
This is the earliest office in the Sarum Use that contains substantial versified elements. This seems to be also the only versified office that was retained in the Breviarium Romanum 1568 of the Tridentine reform.
The office composed by John Peckham (Archbishop of Canterbury 1279-92), appears in the Franciscan influenced Breviarium Romanum, 1529. In the Dominican influenced Breviarium Romanum 1568, the Trinity office is based on that by Stephen of Liège.
See Kate Helsen, ‘Two Trinity Offices Compared’, William Renwick, ed., Chant Old and New/Plain-Chant: l’ancien et le nouveau (Lion’s Bay: The Institute of Medieval Music, 2012):149-187, and Barbara C. Raw, ‘The Office of the Trinity in the Crowland Psalter’ Anglo Saxon England XXVIII (1999): 185-200.

First Vespers
1 Ant. Gloria tribi Trinitas
The text is a metered and partly rhymed doxology (8 8 8 8; a a b c). It appears as a doxology to the Lenten hymns in the Anglo-Saxon ‘Canterbury Hymnal’ British Library MS Add. 37517, fo. 114v-115v. It also appears in the late 10th c. Bosworth Psalter, BL MS Add 37517:115r, 126r. See Gernot R. Wieland, The Canterbury Hymnal (Toronto: Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, 1982): 72-75. It does not appear as a hymn-doxology in the Sarum Use.

This antiphon is also used at Prime on the canticle Quicunque vult.

1578
2 Ant. Laus et perennis gloria
The text is a metered doxology (8 8 8 8). It appears as the doxology for the hymn ‘Deus tuorum militum’ in the ‘Canterbury Hymnal’ British Library MS Add. 37517, fo. 126r (Wieland, p. 123), and concludes the same hymn in the pre and post-Tridentine Roman traditions (e.g. Breviarium Romanum (Paris, 1529), fo C-60r; Breviarium Romanum (Rome, 1568): 900. It does not appear as a hymn-doxology in the Sarum Use.

3 Ant. Gloria laudis resonet in ore
The text is a rhymed and metered doxology (11 11 11 5). It appears as the doxology of the hymn ‘Christe Salvator hominis’ for St. Vedast by Alcuin (c. 735 804)(AH-L, #109, p. 154-155.). It does not appear as a hymn-doxology in the Sarum Use.

1579
4 Ant. Laus Deo Patri geniteque proli
The text is a rhymed and metered doxology (11 11 11 5). It appears in AH-4:46 as the doxology to the hymn ‘Virga de Jesse generata stirpe’. It shares text elements with the doxology ‘Gloria Patri geniteque proli’ attached to the hymn for virgins, ‘Viriginis proles’, which text is also used for responsory 5 (below). The common text in CANTUS begins ‘Laus Deo Patri parilique proli’.

5 Ant. Ex quo omnia (cf. I Cor 8:6; Rom. 11:36.)
The text is based on Augustine (Confessions 1.2.2) ‘ex quo omnia, per quem omnia, in quo omnia’ (‘of whom are all things, by whom are all things, in whom are all things’). It is echoed in Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL-101:55: ‘A quo, per quem, in quo omnia, o beata Trinitas.’

1580
Hymn. Adesto Sancta Trinitas
Being that the earliest record of this hymn is an 11th c. manuscript (British Library Vesp. D. xii. f. 115b.), it is not entirely clear whether this hymn is part of the original office composed by Stephen of Liège. See John Julian, A Dictionary of Hymnology (New York: Scribner’s, 1892): 22.

Trans. (Performing Edition)J. M. Neale, Collected Hymns (1914): 131; (Scholarly Edition) J. D. Chambers, Lauda Syon (1866): 215.

1581
V. Benedicamus Patrem
This is a doxological verse from the liturgically edited ‘Benedicite omnia opera’ (Daniel 3:57 ff.) See p. [53].

Ant. Gratias tibi Deus
In William Laud, Works, (Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1853) III: 62), this text is described as coming from St. Augustine’s Orat. de 5. Heures, cap. vii.g., the first part of a Prayer: ‘Gratias tibi Deus ; Gratias tibi vera et una Trinitas, una et trina Veriatas, trina et una Unitas. Gratias tibi, Deus Pater, qui Filium tuum ostendisti, et mihi doctorem dedisti. O et semper des in misericordia antiquis. Amen.’
This text is found in Hincmar of Rheims (806-882), ‘De una et non trina deitate’ (PL-125 0510D) II.

This antiphon is also used at prime on the canticle Quicunque vult.

1582
Matins

Invit. Deum verum unum
This invitatory text appears in the Portiforium Wulstani II:48, and in the Hyde Breviary II:130r.

1583
1 Ant. Adesto Deus unus omnipotens
This text appears in John Allen Giles, ed. Miscellaneous Works of the Venerable Bede, Vol. I (1843): 243, under the heading ‘In laudem Dei oratio pura’. The same text appears attributed to Alcuin in Alcuini Opera Omnia II (1863): 54, under the heading ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’

2 Ant. Te Unum in substantia
This text (like the previous one) appears in John Allen Giles, ed. Miscellaneous Works of the Venerable Bede, Vol. I (1843): 243, under the heading ‘In laudem Dei oratio pura’. The same text appears attributed to Alcuin in Alcuini Opera Omnia II (1863): 54, under the heading ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’

3 Ant. Te semper idem esse vivere
This text (like the previous two) appears in John Allen Giles, ed. Miscellaneous Works of the Venerable Bede, Vol. I (1843): 243, under the heading ‘In laudem Dei oratio pura’. The same text appears attributed to Alcuin in Alcuini Opera Omnia II (1863): 54, under the heading ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’

1584
Lesson. Credimus Sanctam Trinitatem
The first six lessons are taken from Alcuin’s (ca. 735–804) De fide Sanctae Trinitatis et de incarnatione Christi. See PL 101:56-58.
Trans. WR.
In the Breviarium Romanum 1529 the lessons are from Isaiah, Augustine, and Gregory of Nanzianus.

1 Resp. Benedicat nos Deus (Ps. 66:7-8; 2.)

1585
2 Resp. Benedictus Dominus Deus Israel (Ps. 71:18-19. (Gallican))

1587
3 Resp. Quis Deus magnus (Ps. 76:14-16. (Gallican))

4 Ant. Te invocamus
This is the first of eight pieces in this office that conclude with ‘o beata Trinitas’. The other are the following five antiphons, the seventh responsory, and the fifth antiphon of Lauds.
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL-101:56.

1588
5 Ant. Spes nostra
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL-101:56.

Verse. Benedictus es Domine (Dan. 3:56.)

1589
4 Resp. Magnus Dominus (Ps. 146:5 (Gallican); 144:3.)
This responsory, though strictly Biblical, contains elements of rhyme and metre.

1590
5 Resp. Gloria Patri geniteque proli
The text is a hymn-doxology in the form of a Sapphic stanza (11.11.11.5). It typically appears at the conclusion of the hymn for virgins, ‘Virginis proles opifexque matris’. [847].
The verse (8.8.8.8) is the second strophe is some versions of the hymn ‘Veni Creator Spiritus’, but is apparently not part of the original hymn. See John Julian, A Dictionary of Hymnology (New York: Scribner’s, 1892): 1207.

1591
6 Resp. Honor virtus et potestas

1592
7 Ant. Charitas Pater est

Homily of the Venerable Bede. Sicut ex lectione sancti evangelii
This homily appears in The Miscellaneous Works of Venerable Bede, Vol. V. Homilies (ed. J. A. Giles) (London: Whittaker & co, 1843): 109. Its attribution to Bede is in question.
Trans. WR.
Another English translation appears in Lawrence T. Martin and David Hurst, Bede the Venerable: Homilies on the Gospels (Cistercian Publications) 2.18.

‘Rabi (inquit) scimus . . . nisi fuerit Deus cum eo.’ (John 3:2)

1594
7 Resp. Tibi laus tibi gloria (V. Dan. 3:52.)

‘Respondit enim Jesus . . . regnum Dei.’ (John 3:3)

‘Fuistis eim eorum . . . lux in Domino.’ (Eph. 5:8)

‘Surge illuminare . . . super te ortum est.’ Is. 60:1)

8 Resp. Benedicamus Patrem et Filium
The responsory is a doxological verse from the liturgically edited ‘Benedicite omnia opera’ (Daniel 3:57 ff.) See p. [53].
The verse. (Dan. 3:56.) is also from the ‘Benedicite’.
Both of these texts are used as versicles in this office.

1596
9 Resp. Summe Trinitati

1597
V. Benedictus es Domine
This is repeated from the second nocturn.

Lauds
The antiphons at lauds have verses, as are commonly found in this office.
1 Ant. O beata et benedicta
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL 101:56.
V. Tibi laus tibi gloria

1598
2 Ant. O beata benedicta gloriosa
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL 101:56.
V. Miserere miserere

3 Ant. O vera summa sempiterna
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL 101:56.

This verse repeats the text of the verse for the first antiphon.

1599
4 Ant. O vera summa sempiterna
The text is from Alcuin’s ‘Invocatio ad Ss. Trinitatem, et fidei symbolum ejusdem.’ PL 101:56.
V. Miserere miserere
This verse repeats the text of the verse for the second antiphon.

Most unusually, this antiphon has virtually the same text as the previous antiphon.

5 Ant. Te jure laudant
This antiphon also appears at prime on Sundays, where it is attached to the Quicunque vult. While the text follows the style of the previous antiphons, its origin has yet to be identified.
V. Tibi laus tibi gloria
This verse repeats the text of the verse for the first and third antiphons.

This antiphon is also used at prime on the canticle Quicunque vult.

1600
Hymn. O Pater sancte mitis
Author unknown. Sapphic stanza, 11 11 11 5.

Trans. Percy Dearmer, The English Hymnal, #160.  The translation ‘O holy Father ! Gracious and benign!’ by J. D. Chambers, Lauda Syon (1866): 218, does not follow the original metre.

1601
Verse. Sit nomen Domini (Ps. 112:2.)

1602

Terce

1603
Resp. Benedicamus Patrem
This is a doxological verse from the liturgically edited ‘Benedicite omnia opera’ (Daniel 3:57 ff.) See p. [53]. See the verse at first vespers.

Sext

1604
Resp. Benedictus es Domine (Dan. 3:56.)
This text is repeated from the versicle of the second nocturn.

None

1605
Resp. Verbo Domini (Ps. 32:6.)

Second Vespers

1606
Ant. Te Deum Patrem ingenitum
This antiphon also appears at prime on Sundays, where it is attached to the Quicunque vult.

1607
Ferias after Trinity
Lessons. Confitemur et credimus sanctam
These three readings are taken from the spurious De Trinitate confessio (PL 12 0958D) ascribed to Eusebius Vercellensis (283–371).
The lessons are taken from the Eleventh Council of Toledo Symbol of Faith, November 7, 675.

1608

‘Quando vero fit plenum servitium de aliquo sancto . . . ‘  In the period before the introduction of the Feast of Corpus Christi, the rubric was as follows: ‘Si vero festum ix. lectionum in ebdomada evenerit, totum servitium fiat de festo, et memoria de Trinitate. . . . Si festum iij. lectionum evenerit, tres fiant memorie, prima de Trinitate, secunda de sancta Maria, tertia de omnibus sanctis.’  See Hackney, ed., Ordinale Sarisburiense I:254.

Thus the old rubric does not specify the use of matins antiphons for memorials during the week, as the new one does.  A maximum of five matins antiphons would be needed for memorials between second vespers of the Holy Trinity and first vespers of Corpus Christi.

1609
Corpus Christi
Major Double Feast

This office is commonly and largely attributed to Thomas Aquinas.  See Jean-Pierre Torrell, Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Person and His Work, Vol. 1. (trans. Robert Royal)(Washington: Catholic University of America Press, 2005) :129-136.

See Barbara R. Walters, Vincent Corrigan, and Peter T. Ricketts, The Feast of Corpus Christi, (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2006).

At First Vespers
1 Ant. Sacerdos in eternum (after Gen. 14:18, Ps. 109:4)

The melody is taken from Gloria tibi Trinitas at first vespers of the Holy Trinity.

1610
2 Ant. Miserator Dominus (after Ps. 110:4-5)

3 Ant. Calicem salutaris accipiam (after Ps. 115:4, 8)

4 Ant. Sicut novelle olivarum (after Ps. 127:3)

1611
5 Ant. Qui pacem ponit (after Ps. 147:3)

Chapter. Dominus Jesus in qua nocte

Resp. Homo quidam fecit cenam (from Luke 14:16, Prov. 9:5)

The responsories of Corpus Christ juxtapose texts from the Old and New Testaments.

The syllabic style of the verse is highly unusual.  compare the more ornate version in the Dominican Use:  Fruhwirth, Versperarum liber (1900) 240.

This melody is used as the tenor in Tallis’ motet ‘Homo quidam fecit’.

1612
Hymn. Sacris solemnis
In the Penpont Antiphonal ff 131v and 132r, the hymn ‘Pange lingua’ (of matins) appears in place of ‘Sacris solemnis’, and vice versa.

Trans. (Performing Edition), J. D. Chambers, Lauda Syon, 1866:225.

Trans. (Scholarly Edition) A cento based on J. D. Chambers, The Seven Hours of Prayer:351, as found in Matthew Britt, The Hymns of the Breviary and Missal:185.

1614
V. Panem de celo prestitisti (after Sap. 16:20)

In the Penpont Antiphonal 131v. the V. ends with ‘Alleluya’.

In the York Breviary only the R. ends with ‘Alleluya’.

It would seem that in accordance with the rubric in note 88 at Lauds of Christmas, the Sarum Use omits ‘Alleluya’ at versicles and responses throughout Corpus Christi.

The Hereford Breviary matches Sarum here, with no alleluyas.

Ant. O quam suavis (after Luke 1:53)

1615
Prayer. Deus qui nobis sub sacramento

At Matins
Invit. Christum Regem adoremus

1616
Hymn. Pange lingua

Trans. (Performing Edition) J. M. Neale, Collected Hymns: 64, final two verses as they appear in Hymns Ancient and Modern Revised, #383.

Trans. (Scholarly Edition) Fr. Edward Caswall, as given in Matthew Britt, The Hymns of the Breviary and Missal:183.

(There are two other hymns that begin ‘Pange lingua’, one for Passiontide, and one for the Icon off the Saviour.)
In the Penpont Antiphonal ff 131v and 132r, the hymn Sacris solemnis (of first vespers) appears in place of Pange lingua, and vice versa.

1618
1 Ant. Fructum salutiferum (after Ps. 1:3)

2 Ant. A fructu frumenti (after Ps. 4:8-9)

1619
3 Ant. Communione calicis (cf. Ps. 15:4-5)

2 Ant. Angelorum esca nutrivisti (after Sap. 16:20)

1634
3 Ant. Pinguis est panis (after Gen. 49:20)

The triple Alleluya that concludes this antiphon is unusual.  Most CANTUS sources have only a single Alleluya.

5 Ant. Vincenti dabo manna (Apoc. 2:17)

Lessons. Hujus sacramenta figura

The lessons through the week, apparently compiled by Aquinas, comprise selections from Gratian, De consecratione (Decretum magistri Gratiani (Concordia discordantium canonum) pars 3, dist. 2.  Many of the passages quote texts attributed to Ambrose, and are echoed in Petrus Lombardus, Sententiae.   Different Uses have somewhat different editions and selections of the text.  Text variants that appear in the Sarum Breviary are noted below.

Trans. WR.  Another translation appears in Walters, Corrigan, Ricketts, The Feast of Corpus Christi.

The references to ‘De Sacr.’ are to the work De Sacramentis, attributed to St. Ambrose.  This is available in translation (by Rev. T. Thompson) in St. Ambrose “On the Mysteries” and the Treatise “On the Sacraments” by an Unknown Author. New York: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1919.

Sunday in the Octave of Corpus Christi
Of the Octave with Rulers of the Choir

Before the institution of the Feast of Corpus Christi, this day was ‘Deus omnium’, the first of the ordinary Sundays of the ‘Summer’ season.

The Sarum Rite, like those of the Carmelite and Dominican orders, numbers its Sundays after Trinity rather than after Pentecost.  This is the First Sunday after the Feast of the Trinity.
