Office hymns


Quick Reference

Hymns appear as part of the Monastic Office in the Rule of St Benedict, though they were not generally used in the Roman liturgy until the 12th cent. The 1971 Liturgy of the Hours places a hymn before the Psalms in all Offices; provides two sets of hymns for use at each Office; and allows conferences of bishops to introduce others.
