Sait-on de quelle époque est la mélodie de cette version dominicaine de l'hymne Te lucis des complies ? Le site  GregoBase indique comme référence : Antiphonarium O.P. (Gillet), Dominican, 1933, p. 123.

Bonjour,

Les dates indiquées sont un peu mystérieuses.

Ex: Mélodie n° 66, hymne Æterne rerum conditor "XXI s. (melody from XIII s.)"

Qu'est-ce qui est du XXIème siècle si ce n'est pas la mélodie? Le texte? Il me semble qu'on l'attribue à St Ambroise…

I think the XXI s. is referring to the text, that has been invented for the modern Liturgy of the hours.  I have other books on Dominican chant, and I think that the dates of the melodies come from the dates of the ancient Dominican manuscripts.

Hello. The melody is found in the Dominican repertoire as early as the 1250s. I'm not sure it's history before incorporation into the Dominican repertoire, but it is likely older.

Here is the melody used for the Lauds hymn of the Blessed Virgin Mary common:

(Rome, Santa Sabina, XIV L1, fol. 320r).

The melody would have been used for all the 8.8.8.8 hymns of Mary, including the Te lucis at Compline.

The version you have linked to is the text of the modern Liturgia Horarum; the first and fourth voices are traditional, and the second and third are newly composed in the 1960s/70s.

OK. Thank you for the information. ES

This "mix" from three hymns (The lucis + Aeterne rerum conditor + Memento salutis auctor) appears with the same text and melody in the Dominican antiphonary published in 1933, so I cannot understand how the text can be attributed to XXI century: it is not an invention of the new liturgy post Vatican Council II...
