    Just a thought for a future series: A Breviary Hymn a Day.

    There are no recordings of chanting hymns from the 1962 Roman Breviary. One us to get books like the Liber Usualis and learn to read chant well before hearing these hymns. But even then, you cannot find the hymns for Lauds in that book and must find an old copy of the Antiphonale Romanum. You basically have to have been taught these hymns.

    Other versions of the Divine Office have audio access to many of their hours’ hymns in Latin. Benedictines can listen to the monks of Le Barroux chant the Traditional Benedictine Breviary. Also, those who pray the modern LOTH in Latin can listen to the Vatican Radio podcast of the Liturgia Horarum and learn those Latin Hymns. However, there’s literally nothing online that has the 1962 Breviary Hymns.

    You seem uniquely situated to build up an archive of audio for 1962 Breviary hymns.
