The Monastic Diurnal Noted is a complete Gregorian Antiphonal in English, containing all the Antiphons, Hymn Tunes, and Responsories of the Day Hours of the Benedictine Divine Office.
Originally compiled by the Reverend Canon Charles Winfred Douglas, the published work was prepared posthumously by the Sisters of the Community of Saint Mary. While earlier publications were comprised of two volumes, this reprint consolidates the originals and offers them unabridged under one cover. This reprint is a photographic reproduction of the original editions of 1952 and 1961.
The Monastic Diurnal Noted is an excellent companion volume to the Anglican Breviary.
