I would like to add something to the conversation of the last post: is there a chance of the Benedictines ever returning to the old usage? To the Office as prescribed by the Rule? Or would they be accused of archaeologising? However, the Rule really does talk about the Office, so I don't know how that accusation would apply. If it does eventually happen, I reckon it's much more likely to happen in a traditional monastery.

As you will have gathered from my comments on my rule notes, I certainly hope it might happen.

I guess my view is, in principle I don't see why a monastery couldn't do another revision of the Office that sought to be closer to the original specifications. You'd have to be careful to pick up enough legitimate developments to avoid accusations of achaeologising, but that needed necessarily mean changing the psalms themselves.

That said, it would have been much easier to get it through in that period immediately after VII when monasteries had a license to experiment. My understanding though is that at some point Rome has to approve a monasteries liturgy (unless they are using one of the official schemas) and who knows what attitude the Congregatation for Rites would take to such a proposal at the moment...
