The Angelus

A well-known and popular Anglo Catholic blog has recently raised the issue of the singing of the Angelus. Many Anglo Catholic churches sing it to the same basic setting but all with slight local variations and I have never seen a printed "original" anywhere. All versions seem to be in mss format, as is the one I did for the church where I was D-of-M in the 1970s. I thought it was restricted to Anglican churches - what some might call "Anglican Patrimony" - but, apparently it is done in some Roman Catholic churches as well.

 

Does anyone have any idea as to its origin? It seems to go back a long way - certainly to the 50s and probably much earlier.
