I have just noticed something. On the 123rd page of the MD (Friday Lauds), the antiphon for Canticum Habacuc differs from its actual beginning, yet it says that it is not repeated in the Canticle. I assume (and your Breviary probably agrees?) that we have to change the "auditum tuum" to "auditionem tuam"?

Thank you.

No. That is the original antiphon.
