    I received this only yesterday and I have to say that it is absolutely stunning. Using it has given me consdiderable pleasure already. As someone who has a level of Latin but which isn't anywhere near the standard it ought to be, I like having the English and Latin texts in parallel columns. This makes it easy to say the responses and maybe the Gospel canticles in Latin whilst reading the psalms, chapter, hymn and collect in English. Being the 1960-62 Breviary it reflects the fact that some change was already under way and Anglican users who, for example, might expect to see St John before the Latin Gate on 6th May or the Feast of the Holy Name on 7th August will be in for a shock. However being taken from the 1962 Breviary, this Diurnal has the benefit of current authority for those who want to use the Extraordinary Form of the Roman offices and it also fixes some of the problems which blighted earlier Breviaries, particularly relation to how the psalter was arranged. It is worth... More > bearing in mind that the rubrics are in grey rather than red but this is refelected in the price of the book and how it's produced. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to celebrate the Roman offices in a traditional format.< Less

    In reply to the earlier reviewer, this book can in fact be used by the clergy to fulfill their obligation of reciting the Divine Office because it is a reproduction of a book that was given the necessary approvals. Also, this is the Diurnale, which does not include the hour of Matins, an hour which would require another volume due to its length. The offering of this book is a real service to those who wish to pray the traditional Office, since other editions are fairly pricey.

    This Breviarium Romanum Diurnale is classified as a “Proof Copy” version and so does not have the Ecclesial Approbation under Canon 826 and so only the Laity can use this version which was not indicated in the above description. Plus this edition does not have the Matins Psalms that is indicated in the above description. Hopefully it will be added in the next edition. Other than that, I am pleased with this very nice inexpensive Brevairium Romanum Diurnale Latin/English version for the Laity which also includes the following which were not in the above description. The Office of the Dead, Seven Penitential Psalms, Litany of the Saints with Prayers and the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary which is very nice to have them both together so one doesn’t have to carry two Office books around.
