Fragment: 

  Sanctus Lebuinus antifoon + psalm

2016: The matins of Lebuinus have been composed in the 12th century especially for the feastday of this saint. As with most of the Gregorian chant of the Middle Ages also the composer of these matins (which can be found in the Antiphonalium  of Utrecht, manuscript NL Uu-406) is unknown.

Director Stan Hollaardt spent many hours preparing the notation and text and so did the choir members in rehearsing, because notably  the responsorial chants are tough to master, but worth the time however since they are of exceptional beauty.

The originally nightly chant by the monks in their monasteries is called ‘matins’ or ‘vigilae nocturnae’.

Of all the prayers in the monasteries these ‘nocturnae’ are the most time consuming and exist  in fact of  three nocturnae , each of these with psalms, antiphonae, responsorials and lectures.

The matins start with an ‘invitatorium’ and a hymn; they end with a ‘Te Deum’.

 Price € 8,00 .
