|The Clondalkin Breviary consists of chants for the Divine Office which date from the second half of the fifteenth century. Senan Furlong notes that, ‘[a]though it was also used at Clondalkin near Dublin, its original provenance may be the Ossory / Kilkenny area. […] Its calendar contains entries for 27 Irish saints in the original hand. In the sanctorale, which contains material for the celebration of the feastdays of saints, there are notated offices for Sts Brigid, Patrick, and Canice, all of them incomplete owing to the loss of the original folios’. See Senan Furlong, ‘The Clondalkin Breviary’, The Encyclopaedia of Music in Ireland, eds. Harry White and Barra Boydell, 2 vols. (Dublin, 2013), I, p.209.|
1. Ihesu redemptor omniumnos servos sancti Cannici per ipsius suffragium regni fac cives celici. 2. Divino sub obsequio plures habens discipulos erexit pio studio sacros virtutum titulos. 3. Dum sancte vite regulis devota mente paruitverbo vita miraculis late per orbem claruit. 4. Ingressus in Ytaliam ignis fornacem superat, quem miram per potenciam Deus a mari liberat. 5. In trinitate simplici soli Deo sit gloriaqui prece sancti Cannicinos ducat ad celestia.
