I have taken it upon myself to provide the Psalms & Antiphons of the pre-1911 Breviary for use by Anglican Breviary devotees. This may take a while, especially since I just injured my hand two days ago and it seems it has become infected. The Anglican Breviary is not my only pass-time … I also dabble in bee-keeping and have just built (from scratch) a Goltz beehive (see picture). In the process of building this contraption I accidentally made an attempt to remove my left hand from my body. The attempt luckily failed but is in need of more attention than I have been giving it.
Once the series is finished I will turn the posts into pdf files so they can be downloaded. I will try and get them to fit nicely with the Anglican Breviary. You will notice that the Antiphons are sometimes quite different from the ones you may be used to from your use of the Anglican Breviary. this has two reasons: 1) the Pian reforms eliminated many traditional Antiphons, 2) Fr. Joseph – who is the hand behind the Anglican Breviary – regularly took liberties with regard to Antiphons, Responsories in translating them.
