Antiphonarium or Antiphonary

Antiphonarium or Antiphonary a Roman service-book containing all the anthems, responsaries, collects, and whatever else was said or sung in the choir, except the lessons. It is sometimes called the responsorium, from the responses contained in it. The author of the Roman antiphonary was Gregory the Great. We read of nocturnal and diurnal antiphonaries, for the use of daily and nightly offices; of summer and winter antiphonaries; also antiphonaries for country churches. These and many other popish books were forbidden to be used by the 3 and 4 Edward VI. SEE ANTIPHON
