PREFACE

The v~ry nature of the Hours of the Monastic Psalter in the Western Rite provides a rich abundance of devotional material for each of the seasons of the Liturgical Year. Although outside of the Holy Triduum and the Week of Pasch a the structure of the Psalter does not change, most of the Antiphons, Responsories, Hymns, Scripture and Patrlstic,' Lessons, and Collects are changed to correspond to the mysteries jrf the Season. ~refore, to chant the praying of the Psalter it is necessary to havesboth the Psalter'[ as structured by St. Benedict of Nursia, as d .also the Proper portions of the Psalter that are reserved for the Season being obseraed. This Volume of the Psalter, Volume VI, the Seasonal Propers for the Season of Septuagesirna, therefore, is meant to be used during the Season of Septuagesima in simultaneous conjunction with the main portion of the Psalter given in Volume I, the Psalter Outside of Paschaltide. • Virtually every 1'/ou;;/ of the Monastic Psalter during this Season

it. therefore will require the chant:6s to have both Volume I and Volume VI of the Psalter in front of them on tneir analogi on or lecturn, and to turn from one to the other, as directed to do in this Volume of the Propers of the Season. In editing these Volumes, however, every effort has been made to minimize the number of times , needed to alternate between the Volumes in use, so that this would be done at most two I or three times per Hour or per Nocturn. Keeping in mind that the structure of the Hours during this Season remains the same as that given in Volume I, it should be always understood that when a portion of any Hour is given in this Volume, "it completely replaces the same portion given in Volume I; but any part of any Hour that is given in Volume I, when no replacement for it is given in this Volume, is to be sung in \ addition to the parts of the same Hour given in this Volume. This, of course, includes the Introduction and Conclusions of each of the Hours" the Hymns at the Little Hours (Prime, Terce, Sext, and None), as well as the Hymns T e Deum and T e Decet Laus at Night Vigils (Matins). To determine the correct day's text and instructions, it will of course be necessary to have the current year's copy of the Western Rite Julian Calendar, which is annually obtainable from St. Gregory's Pressat one of the addresses' given on the title page.

Once again, the Editors would like to express their enduring gratitude to the Very Reverend Father John Shaw, onetime Dean of Holy Protection Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago for the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. Father John first pointed us in the direction of these manuscripts, and then spent many hours translating the chant notation and clarifying an understanding of the manuscript which our ineptitude prevented. 'Likewise, we would want to express our gratitude to Father Justin of Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Boston, Mass. for extending to us the kind permission of Bishop Ephraim for using their translation (1987) of the Psalter. This translation' served well our purposes in preserving ancient Orthodox worship, and in the rare places (such as Psalms 13 and 94) where the ancient Western usage derived from the Latin Vulgate translation of St. Jerome of Sidonium had made use of Septuagint manuscripts with additional phrases, these phrases, taken from the translation of the Septuagint by Sir Lancelot Brenton (1851), have been included in our Psalter within parentheses. We are confident that this usage has preserved the ancient meaning of the Psalms which were so dear to the early Christians, and which spoke so directly of the prophecies that were fulfilled in the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

In editing this material, we have taken some liberties regarding matters of capitalization, hyphenation, and versification (which follows that of the Vulgate), so as to best allow the unpracticed eye to chant these texts prayerfully and with a minimum of error. Also, the chant melodies for the many Hymns have been kept to a simple number preserved in these manuscripts, and variant melodies are provided only when the manuscript so directs. In actual medieval usage, many more melodies were probably utilized at the discretion of the 'Precentors, depending mainly on the training of the Monks or Nuns. In keeping the number of these lower, it is hoped that our enfeebled minds may not be overly more occupied by the mechanics of chanting our praises than by the content of offering in our prayer.

iv

Also, we would like to thank our brethren of our Synod at St. Hllarion's Monastery and St. Hilarion's Guild Press in Austin for providing so fine a computer typing of the text of the Psalms which we were able to edit. This entire volume is printed using Multi-Lingual Scholar, a word processing DOS program put out by Gamma Productions in Santa Monica, California, combined with our own rendition of Gregorian Chant fonts. This software has made possible that which Monks and Nuns of the ancient Scriptorfum could only have dreamed about.

. 'This series is/divided~into many Volumes, for which Volume I is the Psalter Outside.""of Paschaltide,. Vl1rume II is the Psalter to be used in Pasosaltlde (from Low Sunday through the Octave of Pentecost), -and Volume III begins he Proper Offices with those for the Season of Advent. The Offices of the Holy Triduum and those of the Week of Pascha, while having a Monastic usage, are not technically part of the Monastic Psalter, as the Cathedral ).Jse -, like that of Old Sarum, not the Rule of

. St. Be~edict, .. has provi~ed the s!J:~ct}~e for these offices ev~r since. the Mon~stic ... Council of Aachen (Alx-la-Chapelle) In 817 A.D., and thus IS provided for In a separate Volume of the Proper."

Finally, we apologize that our effort could not prove to be more grand, since, in order to complete these Volumes in a suitable time frame, we have neglected style and '.1 the multitudinous ornamentations that our holy predecessors provided in their I manuscipts. May Heaven forgive us! And may all who use these volumes pray for the souls of the unworthy workers who have-put them together. a Lord Jesus Christ, Sorh of God, have mercy upon us, the sinners.

"Neither con-foun-ding the T Per-sons, * nor div-i- t ding the Sub-stance.

t of the Ho-ly Ghost. ,

~ "But the God-Head of the Father, of the Son, and of the Ho-Iy Ghost is T All

One; * the Glory Equal, the ~ajes-ty t, Co-E-ter-rial.

"Such as the Fath-er is, Such T is the &on, * and Such 1 is the Ho-ly Ghost.

, "The Fatherj ncreate, the Son i Un-cre-ate, * and the Ho- t ly Ghost

Un-cre-ate.

"The _ Father Incomprehensible, the Son In-com-pre- T hen-slb-le, * and the

Holy Ghost In- 1 corn-pre-hen-slb-le. . I.

"The Father Eternal, the Son E- i ter-nal, * and the Holy 1 Ghost E-ter-nal.

"As also there are nQ_t three incomprehensibles, nor three un-cre- i a-ted, * but

One Incomprehensible, and One t Un-cre-a-ted. , . ,

"So likewise the Father is Almighty, the &On AI;:- i migh-ty-, * _and the Hgly 1 GhOst AI-migh-tY. "As yet there are not three al- i migh-ties, * but I One Al-mlgh-tj'.

"So the Father is God, the i Son is God, * and the 1 Ho-ly Ghost is God. "As yet they are not i three gods, * 1 (') but One God.

"So likewise the Father is Lord, the T Son is Lorp, * and the t Ho-ly Ghost is Lord. "As yet there are not T three lords, * t (') but One Lord.

"For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge Ev'ry Person by Him-self to be i God and Lord, * so are we forbidden by Cath'lic religion to say, 'There be three 1 gods, or three lords.'

"The Fath-er is i Made of nope; * neither Created 1 nor Be-got-ten.

"The Son is of the Fath-er i A-lone; * not Made, nor Created, 1 but Be-got-ten. "The Ho-Iy Ghost is Of the T Fath-er; * neither Made, nor Created, nor

Begottenvl but Pro-ceed-ing. _

"So there is One Father, not three fath-ers; t One Son, not i three sons; * One Holy Ghost, 1 not three ho-ly ghosts.

. "And in This Trinity None is afore, or after oth-er; t None is Greater, or Ljss than

An- i oth-er; * but the Whole Three Persons .are Co-Eternal together, ~ and Co-E-quat.

"So that [n all things, as i§ a-fore-said, t the Unit-y in i Trin-it-y, * and the

Trinity in Unity is t to be Wor-shipp'd. _ ,

"He therefore that would be T sa-ved * must thus think t of the Trin-it-y." Furthermore, it is necessary to ever-las-ting sal- i va-tion * that he also believe rightly the Incarnation of lOur Lord Je-sus Christ.

The Collect

Purify Thy faithful, we beseech Thee, 0 Lord, in body as well as in mind, that, goaded on by Thine inspiration they may prevail to shun harmful enticements, and, so that they may not be taken with the allurements of such things, may they seek to make a catch of Thy sweetness. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, through all the ages of ages. W. Amen.

On all days during this Season of Septuagesima , if the day falls before the Feast of the Purification of the Theotokos , Feb. 2./ 15, a commemoration of the T heotokos during N ativitytide is here made as given on pp . D 157 - D 158.

"Neither con-f'oun-i I ding the Per-sons, * nor dlv- 1 i-ding the Sub-stance. (;

" "But the God-Head of the Father, of the Son, and of the Ho-ly 1 Ghost is All One; * the Glory Equal, the Mjljes- 1 ty Qo-E-ter-nal. /'

"Such as the Fath-er 1 is, Such is ,the Son, * and t Such is the Ho-ly Q_host. ' "The Father Uncreate, 1 the Son Uri-cre-ate, * and the 1 Ho-ly Ghost Un-cre-ate. "The Father Incomprehensible, the Son In- 1 com-pre-hen-sib-le, * and the

Holy Ghost 1 In-com-pre-hen-slb-le,

, "The Father Eternal, the 1 Son E-ter-nal, * and the Ho- I Iy Ghost E-ter-nal.

"As also there are not jhree incomprehenslbles, nor three 1 un-cre-a-ted, * but

One Incomprehensible, and 1 One Uri-cre-a-ted. , ,

"So like~ the Father is Almighty, the j Soo"A1-migh-t}',* and the H~ t ly Ghost A1-migh-t5r. "As yet there are not 1 three al-migh-ties, * 1 but One Al-migh-ty,

"So the Fathe!#-is 1 God, the Son is God, * and ~ the Ho-ly Ghost is God. "

"As yet they t are not three gods, * t t : ') but One God.

"So likewise the Father is 1 Lord, the Son is LOrd, !- and 1 the Ho-ly Ghost is Lord. "As yet there 1 are not three lords, * 1 t : ') but One Lord.

"For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge Ev'ry Person by Him-self t to be God and Lord, * so are we forbidden by Cath'Iic religion to say, 'There be 1 three gods, or three lords.'

"The Fath- 1 er is Made of none; * jieither Crea-: t ted nor Be-got-ten.

"The Son is of the t Fath-er A-lone; * not Made, nor- Crea- 1 ted, but Be-got-ten.

"The Ho-Iy Ghost js t Of the Fath-er; * neither Made, nor Created, nor

Begot- 1 ten, but Pro-ceed-ing. _

"So there is One Father, not three fath-ers; tOne 1 Son.. not three sons; * One - Holy t Ghost, not three ho-ly ghosts.

"And in This Trinity None is afore, or after oth4r; t None is Greater, pr Less 1 than An-oth-er; * but the Whole Three Persons are Co-Eternal togeth- 1 er, and Co,.-E-qual.

"So that in_all things, as is" a-fore-said, t the Unit- 1 y in Trin-it-y, * and the

Trinity in Unity 1 is to be Wor-shipp'd. _,

"He therefore that 1 woiild be sa-ved * must thus 1 think of the Trin-it-y." Furthermore, it is necessary to ever-las- 1 ling sal-va-tion * that he also believe rightly the Incarnation 1 of Our Lord Je-sus Christ.

For the Orthodox Faith is this: "That we believe and con-fess t that Our Lord Jesus 1 Christ, the Son of God, * 1 (:" ') is God and Man;

Psalm 50:

The 1st Cantor alone chants the first half of the first verse of the 1st Psalm verse, using this Tone, including the intonation notes (within the first set of brackets therein):

Have mer-cy on me, i 0 God, *

Then, only the 1st Cantor's side ei: the Quire completes the verse:

. ;. . according to Thy 1 great mer-cy.

And then, only -the Znds Cantor's side ei. the Quire chants the entire next verse (omitting the intonation ;totes), the two sides alternating the verses tlfer-eafter:

And according to the multitude 01 Thy' com- T pas-sion * blot out my

1 trans-gres-sion. _, ~

Wash me thoroughly from mine in- l' i-quit-j" * and cleanse me 1 from my sin. For I know mine in- T I-quit-y.." and my sin is ev--er J be-fore me.

Against Tchee only have I sir{ned, and done _this e-vil be- i fore Thee, * that "" Thou mightest be Justified in ),hy/words) and pre-vail 1 when Thou art Judged.

For behold, I was con-ceived in in- i i-quit-les, '* and in sins did my mOth-l er bear me. For be-hold, Thou. hast i lov-ed Trflthj " the hidden and secret things of Thy"

Wisdom hast Thou made man-i- 1 fest un-to me. ('

1 they shall re- joice. »>: /' ~ , A '
