Lazarus in the Temporal Cycle

Vendôme, Bib. mun. ms. 221, Antiphonarium, 15th C


In addition to the office to Lazarus, which was sung on the saint's feast day, the Lazarus story was also commemorated in the temporal (the liturgical cycle that follows the life of Christ through the year) on the Saturday before Passion Sunday. In the fifteenth-century antiphonary from Vendôme, there are two chants that are sung on this day, ad monumentum and Lazarus amicus.
