  1. A couple of questions my friend.

    Is the Quicumque Vult prayed every Sunday or selected Sundays? If so, which Sundays are these (for example is prayed during Easter and Lent)?

    And number two, for Eastertide, are the antiphons a ninefold Alleluia on Sunday Lauds and then a four fold Alleluia for the other hours expect for Vespers which would have a three fold Alleluia? And on Ferias during Paschal Season, would it be this way: Three fold Alleluia for Lauds/Vespers, four fold Alleluia for the other Hours. I do not think DO is correct and I think the practice in my Monastic Diurnal must be similar to the Tridentine Office.

    Thank you.

  2. VPL, first of all, welcome to the CTO and thanks for reading! These are good questions, and ones which many of us, myself included, didn't always grasp, especially when trying to discover the riches of the real Roman Rite after having been first introduced to the Roman Breviary via the 1962 rubrics.

    The Quicumque or Athanasian Creed is prayed at Prime on all Sundays when the Office is of the Sunday, that is, the Dominical Office, and the feast of the Most Holy Trinity. This holds true for any time of the year. Effectively, it's prayed every Sunday except for Pascha and Pentecost as well as the Sundays within the Octaves of Christmas, Epiphany, Ascension, Corpus Christi, and the Sacred Heart and any other Sunday in which the Sunday is displaced by a Duplex feast. The reason those Sundays within the aforementioned octaves are exempted from the Quicumque is that their Offices are Festal, i.e. the Office is taken from the antecedent feast. There are other Sundays Per Annum which may, incidentally, occur within other Octaves (e.g. the 6th. Sunday after Pentecost falling within the Octave of Ss. Peter & Paul), but in those cases, those Sundays retain their own Dominical Office, not the Office from the feast whose octave is occurring; hence, Quicumque is still prayed in these latter cases.

    Your question about Lauds during the Paschal season is a bit late to be asking! For next year - the ninefold Alleluia is sung at Lauds on both Sundays and Feriae from Low Sunday to the Vigil of the Ascension, when the Office is of the season, encompassing Pss. 92, 99, 62-66. The Benedicite and the Laudate psalms each have their own separate antiphons as well. For the day Hours, there is a quadruple Alleluia antiphon with the psalms, again when the Office is de Tempore. Vespers has a triple Alleluia to go with its five psalms, and Compline also a triple Alleluia nightly with its psalms.

    The Divinum Officium is often riddled with typos and errors. For example, I was recently dismayed when, while divested of a print breviary the afternoon of the Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension, I pulled up None on my iPhone app, and the Capitulum given was not that proper for the Sunday, but the same one from the Ascension itself used on other days in the octave.

  4. Divinum Officium also does not actually have the pre-Sarto antiphons in the 1570 or 1910 Offices, and it does not have the traditional hymns in the 1570 Office.

  5. Indeed, Matthew. Albeit, I have been able to use the hymns from my Monastic Diurnal for many of those given on DO. I think the only option is to purchase a Pre-1911 Breviary since there are a lot of mistakes online.
