In the book, "The Musical Shape of the Liturgy" (by William Peter Mahrt, © 2012 Church Music Association of America), there's an adequate section on Antonio Vivaldi (starting on p. 333), but I'll only quote a paragraph on p. 340 that seems relevant to the score of the previous post:


Aside from the three movements of the Mass, Vivaldi’s compositions on liturgical texts generally belong to the office of vespers. This was, in fact, an important and well-attended public service in his time. The standardization of the order of the liturgy which followed the Council of Trent provided composers the assurance of universal suitability for their pieces, and there followed during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries a large number of publications of settings for vespers. The solemn singing of vespers on Sundays and feast days came to be an elaborate affair, and it was not uncommon for this single service to last for two or three hours in churches where such music was especially cultivated. But the question remains, were Vivaldi’s pieces written for such services?

As a footnote I love Vivaldi's compositions, both liturgical & secular.  His "Four Seasons" compilation is available for listening at EMH Classical Music, and when my "contentment" is too contingent on external stimuli (which is far too often ;-) ), I find his pieces most conducive to relaxation and an even keel.

www.almudi.org/images/Portals/0/docs/Bre...  (The QuickTime plug-in is disabled on some browsers.)


Canticum: Benedictus {Antiphona ex Proprio de Tempore} 
Ant. Mulier * quae erat in civitate peccatrix, stans retro secus pedes Domini, lacrimis coepit rigare pedes eius, et capillis capitis sui tergebat, et deosculabatur pedes eius et unguento ungebat.
(Canticum Zachariae: Luc. 1:68-79)
1:68 Benedictus  Dóminus, Deus Israël: * quia visitávit, et fecit redemptiónem plebis suæ:
1:69 Et eréxit cornu salútis nobis: * in domo David, púeri sui.
1:70 Sicut locútus est per os sanctórum, * qui a sǽculo sunt, prophetárum eius:
1:71 Salútem ex inimícis nostris, * et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos.
1:72 Ad faciéndam misericórdiam cum pátribus nostris: * et memorári testaménti sui sancti.
1:73 Iusiurándum, quod iurávit ad Ábraham patrem nostrum, * datúrum se nobis:
1:74 Ut sine timóre, de manu inimicórum nostrórum liberáti, * serviámus illi.
1:75 In sanctitáte, et iustítia coram ipso, * ómnibus diébus nostris.
1:76 Et tu, puer, Prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis: * præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini, paráre vias eius:
1:77 Ad dandam sciéntiam salútis plebi eius: * in remissiónem peccatórum eórum:
1:78 Per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri: * in quibus visitávit nos, óriens ex alto:
1:79 Illumináre his, qui in ténebris, et in umbra mortis sedent: * ad dirigéndos pedes nostros in viam pacis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Ant. Mulier * quae erat in civitate peccatrix, stans retro secus pedes Domini, lacrimis coepit rigare pedes eius, et capillis capitis sui tergebat, et deosculabatur pedes eius et unguento ungebat.

Canticum: Benedictus {Antiphona from the Proper of the season} 

Ant. A woman in the city which was a sinner stood at the Lord's Feet behind Him, * and began to wash His Feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His Feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
(Canticle of Zacharias: Luke 1:68-79)
1:68 Blessed be the Lord  God of Israel; * because he hath visited and wrought the redemption of his people:
1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation to us, * in the house of David his servant:
1:70 As he spoke by the mouth of his holy Prophets, * who are from the beginning:
1:71 Salvation from our enemies, * and from the hand of all that hate us:
1:72 To perform mercy to our fathers, * and to remember his holy testament,
1:73 The oath, which he swore to Abraham our father, * that he would grant to us,
1:74 That being delivered from the hand of our enemies, * we may serve him without fear,
1:75 In holiness and justice before him, * all our days.
1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: * for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways:
1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to his people, * unto the remission of their sins:
1:78 Through the bowels of the mercy of our God, * in which the Orient from on high hath visited us:
1:79 To enlighten them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death: * to direct our feet into the way of peace.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost. 
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Ant. A woman in the city which was a sinner stood at the Lord's Feet behind Him, * and began to wash His Feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His Feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

Hymn for Sunday Lauds odd week (Ætérne rerum cónditor):



Be forewarned that, although the Latin/English translation is contained in the hyperlink above, "The numbering of the verses skips from 4 to 7 due to two other verses which the Liber Hymnarius leaves out, but which were included in Britt."  So after the 4th stanza, you have to scroll down for stanzas 5 & 6, then scroll back up for 7.  You may also notice that the RSS feed (i.e., "Canamus Blog Roll") contains posts from a blog titled "What Does the Prayer Really Say?", which goes into excruciating detail as to the English translations of the Latin collects contained in the ICEL for the Pope Paul VI ordo masses (... the original Latin collects are mostly the same, just switched around for different weeks of the calendar year).

From the 1st reading today (Office of Readings; Malachi 3:3-4):


For he is like the refiner’s fire, or like the fuller’s lye. He will sit refining and purifying [silver], and he will purify the sons of Levi, Refining them like gold or like silver that they may offer due sacrifice to the Lord. Then the sacrifice of Judah and Jerusalem will please the Lord, as in days of old, as in years gone by.


Handel - Mesias - And he shall purify - Clare College Choir:



Pray for priests!!

Preces Feriales{FERIA SEXTA, Hebd. XXX: Ad Laudes matutinas}



Christum, qui sánguine suo per Spíritum Sanctum semetípsum óbtulit Patri ad emundándam consciéntiam nostram ab opéribus mórtuis, adorémus et sincéro corde profiteámur:In tua voluntáte pax nostra, Dómine.





Diéi exórdium a tua benignitáte suscépimus,
nobis páriter vitæ novæ concéde inítium. In tua voluntáte pax nostra, Dómine.



Qui ómnia creásti providúsque consérvas,
fac ut inspiciámus perénne tui vestígium in creátis. In tua voluntáte pax nostra, Dómine.


Qui sánguine tuo novum et ætérnum testaméntum sanxísti,
da ut, quæ præcipis faciéntes, tuo fidéles fœderi maneámus. In tua voluntáte pax nostra, Dómine.


Qui, in cruce pendens, una cum sánguine aquam de látere effudísti,
hoc salutári flúmine áblue peccáta nostra et civitátem Dei lætífica. In tua voluntáte pax nostra, Dómine.



Weekday Intercessions{Friday in the 30th week of ordinary time}



Let us adore Christ who offered himself to the Father through the Holy Spirit to cleanse us from the works of death.
Let us adore him and call upon him with sincere hearts:
In your will is our peace, Lord.



From your generosity we have received the beginning of this day,
 grant us also the beginning of new life.
In your will is our peace, Lord.



You created all things, and now you provide for their growth,
 may we always perceive your handiwork in creation.
In your will is our peace, Lord.



With your own blood, you ratified the new and eternal covenant.
 may we remain faithful to that covenant by following your precepts.
In your will is our peace, Lord.



On the cross, blood and water flowed from your side,
 may this saving stream wash away our sin and gladden the City of God.
In your will is our peace, Lord.
