De nuptiis Agni:



One of my favorite songs in Vespers (... Latin/English translation can be viewed scrolling halfway down ...)

A 3yr-old recording of vespers is made accessible in the youtube embeds, with additional links to parts 3 & 4 underneath the embeds.  The last chance to include the antiphons of the Octave this year is tomorrow evening (4/5/13).  The office is prayed with the breviary in accordance with the missal of Pope John XXIII, available here.  The only difference would be the antiphon to the Magnificat, which changes with the gospel readings on various days in the Octave.  The recording is absolutely superb!

There's also a beautiful youtube video of Compline sung by Benedictine nuns:



One can go strait to Compline at 9:39 into the video.  There are some minor differences in the way they sang Compline & the way it would be sung now, partly owing to customs peculiar to the Benedictine Order and partly owing to the Easter Octave.  In the video, the Pater Noster isn't prayed prior to the Confiteor, but just prior to the Oratio near the end, and right after the Kyrie, which is preceded by the brief responsory that usually follows the Canticle of Simeon.  Also, we sing the Regina Caeli instead of the Salve Regina due to the High Season.  Nevertheless, a beautiful recording, the differences easily smoothed over with a little bit of ingenuity.

Another variation of one of the songs preceding compline in the previous video:



Salve Mater misericordiae, Mater Dei et Mater veniae, Mater spei et Mater gratiae, Mater plena Sanctae Letitiae,
O Maria!
Salve decus humani generis. Salve Virgo dignior ceteris, quae virgines omnes transgrederis et altius sedes in superis. O Maria!
Salve Mater...
Salve felix Virgo puerpera: Nam qui sedet in Patris dextera, Caelum regens, terram et aethera, Intra tua se clasit viscera. O Maria!
Salve Mater...
Esto, Mater, nostrum solatium: Nostrum esto, tu Virgo, guadium, et nos tandem post hoc exsilium, Laetos juge choris caelestium. O Maria!
Salve Mater...

Hail mother of mercy, mother of God and mother of pardon, mother of hope and mother of grace, mother full of holy gladness. O Mary!
Hail, honor of the mankind. Hail worthier Virgin than the other ones because you overcome all of them and in the heaven you occupy the highest seat of honor. O Mary!
Hail mother...
Hail Blest Virgin yet bearing child: For he who sits at the Father's right hand. The ruler of heaven, of earth and sky, has sheltered Himself in your womb. O Mary!
Hail mother...
Become, O mother, our solace: Be for us our source of joy, and at the last, after this exile, unite us rejoicing to the choir of angels. O Mary!
Hail mother...

A somewhat higher scale, but here's the sheetmusic for the nun's version. (... translation ...)

Morning offering (September 2, 1015):


Preces Feriales{Ad Laudes matutinas, FERIA QUARTA, Hebd. XXII} ...



Benedíctus Deus salvátor noster, qui usque ad consummatiónem sæculi se ómnibus diébus cum Ecclésia sua mansúrum promísit. Ideo ei grátias agéntes clamémus: Mane nobíscum, Dómine.




Mane nobíscum, Dómine, toto die,
numquam declínet a nobis sol grátiæ tuæ.   Mane nobíscum, Dómine.


Hunc diem tibi tamquam oblatiónem consecrámus,
dum nos nihil pravi factúros aut probatúros pollicémur.                                             Mane nobíscum, Dómine.


Fac, Dómine, ut donum lucis hic totus dies evádat,
ut simus sal terræ et lux mundi.           Mane nobíscum, Dómine.


Spíritus Sancti tui cáritas dírigat corda et lábia nostra,
ut in tua iustítia semper et laude maneámus.                                           Mane nobíscum, Dómine.





Weekday Intercessions{Morning Prayer for Wednesday in the 22nd week of Ordinary Time} ...



Blessed be God our Savior, who promised to remain with his Church all days, until the end of the world. Let us give him thanks and call out:
Remain with us, Lord.



Remain with us the whole day, Lord,
— let your grace be a sun that never sets.
Remain with us, Lord.



We dedicate this day to you as an offering,
— do not let us offer anything that is evil.
Remain with us, Lord.



May your gift of light pervade this whole day,
— that we may be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
Remain with us, Lord.



May the love of your Holy Spirit direct our hearts and our lips,
— and may we always act in accordance with your will.
Remain with us, Lord.



Oratio {ex Proprio Sanctorum} 
V. Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
Orémus
Concede, quaesumus, Ecclesiae tuae, omnipotens Deus: ut beatum Stephanum Confessorem tuum, quem regnantem in terris propagatorem habuit, propugnatorem habere mereatur gloriosum in caelis.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Filium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
R. Amen.



Prayer {from the Proper of Saints} 
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.
Let us pray.
Grant unto thy Church, we beseech thee, O Almighty God, that even as thy blessed Confessor Stephen, while he was a King upon earth, was her forwarder, so, now that he is a glorious Saint in heaven, he may be her defender.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

This is a rather upbeat rendition of Psalm 147, verses 12-20 (typically the 2nd psalm of 1st Vespers for common feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary) by one of my favorite composers.
