On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

PDF Download • “Antiphonale Romanum” (1949)
published 6 March 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

327 CHRISTUS ID YOU REALIZE the CMAA has scanned and uploaded the Solesmes 1949 ANTIPHONALE ROMANUM? It appears to be an edition from 1960, because it contains—at the very back of the book—the feast of St. Joseph the Worker (©1960) and the Queenship of Mary (©1956):

    * *  ANTIPHONALE ROMANUM (100MB)

    * *  ANTIPHONALE ROMANUM (38MB)

This book is quite useful. For instance, I used a text found on page 366 to create this SATB Hymn for Lent:

    * *  SATB Hymn • “O Sol Salutis Inimis”

Notice how beautiful the typesetting is:

For the record, Watershed in 2008 placed many versions of the Antiphonale online—but not the 1949 edition. Later on, we scanned and uploaded the 1934 Antiphonale Monasticum.
