Examples of our liturgy

Some of the following recordings were made in our chapel, others are from a CD recorded by us and the organ improvizer Prof. Jaroslav Vodrazka in Sts. Peter and Paul’s Church at Vysehrad, Prague and published by the Karmelitanske nakladatelstvi, Kostelni Vydri. All the following chants are used in our Masses or as part of the Daily Prayer of the Church (the Breviary).

Chants used at Mass:

Selected chants from the Liturgy of Hours (the Breviary):

The Sunday Vespers and Compline:

were recorded for this web-site thanks to the generosity of our friends Jakub and Tomas from the SYPE Studio, who visited us to make a professional live recording during the very prayer at our chapel. Their work is highly to be recommended!

Sunday Vespers: (on week-days we chant the Vespers in Czech for the most part, only some parts of it are in Latin; the Sunday Vespers are all in Latin)
Sunday Compline (we chant the Compline in Czech during the ordinary time; yet during Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter tides, and on some feasts and solemnities we chant it in Latin)
