While I'm no expert, on page 142* it directs us to page 44, on which it also says that on the First Sunday after Epiphany we use psalms 92 and 99. It also says that on these days (I assume this includes the 1st Sunday) there are proper antiphons for the Lauds' psalms - however there is no such thing in the Diurnale.

Ivan said...

However, it seems that the monks of Le Barroux did pray the Miserere...

Kate Edwards said...

I've followed the rubrics in the Breviary on this one, which says normal Sunday psalms. I suspect the Diurnal's instruction is an overlooked leftover from the days when Epiphany had an octave...

Ivan said...

I presume you are right. I shall correct it in the MD! Thank you.

Kate, does the residue of the old Octave also explain the presence of Ben and Mag antiphons for Day VI after Epiphany, which would presumably always be superseded by the propers of the Baptism of the Lord?

Kate Edwards said...

Brian- Yes they are a leftover of the Octave. But when there was an octave, no Saturday of Our Lady, so all six were used. The current rubrics don't actually make a lot of sense, but I guess at least they've made some effort to retain the texts as best they could.
