40 Hours - Divine Office

The prayers continue...  
Lancaster Cathedral: 40 Hours - 2012
Each day begins with Morning prayers.  Throughout the day other prayers from the daily office are said.  Evening prayers - vespers and Night prayers - compline.  On Saturday evening the Office of Readings will also be prayed.  These prayers include psalms and short readings and when prayer or sung together the psalms are said antiphonally which is where the priest (cantor) and people take it in turns to say the verses.  For an on-line version of the Daily Office click here
