Here is a sample of Sung Latin Compline. If you press the Play button, you will see how each line is highlighted as it is sung.
You don’t need an Internet connection to listen to your music or speech. Of course, you do need one to download the content onto your device in the first place – this happens automatically when you buy the content (if it costs money) or the first time you play it (if it’s free).
These prices are approximate. Both Google Play and Amazon have the final say on prices, taking into account taxes and exchange rates. You will always be told the exact price before you are asked to make payment.
When there is something available for a particular Hour:
A message will pop up, with two choices:
Listen to free sample – plays you a sample so that you know what your purchase will sound like. For Compline, this is the Salve Regina (or Regina cæli, etc, depending on the season). For the Gospels at Mass, and Lauds and Vespers and the daytime Hours, it is the Hours for Christmas Day.
Find out more – tells you about the audio content and gives you its price. Content that is always the same, such as Sung Latin Compline, is normally a single in-app purchase, while content that changes every day, such as the daytime Hours, is normally a monthly subscription. A monthly subscription renews itself every month and you can terminate it at any time just by turning off the automatic renewal.
If you have more than one Android device that uses Google Play [or the Amazon Appstore, if that is what you are using] then you won’t have to buy twice. Whatever is bought on one device becomes available on all the other devices that share the same account.
We are working on recording the Office of Readings. Since the Office of Readings contains huge readings, different ones for every day, this is a huge task. We hope to complete it by the end of 2018, but this is an aspiration rather than a promise!
For the moment, the only spoken audio you can listen to on the Office of Readings page is the First Reading (the long reading from Scripture). Once the collection of First Readings is complete, the remaining parts of the Office of Readings will be recorded.
