Traditional Benedictine Office - Ordo for the first week after Epiphany (Jan 7-13)

This week we are still in the broader season of the Nativity, and the 1962 Office preserves most of the texts of the previous octave of the Epiphany.  

Key to the abbreviations:

MD= Monastic Diurnal (MD, 2004 onwards editions)
AM =Antiphonale Monasticum 1934 (1995 edition).
LR=Liber Responsorialis (downloadable from CC Watershed) and the Nocturnale Romanum.
LH=Liber Hymnarius, 1983
SupAM=Supplement to the Antiphonale Monasticum published by Clear Creek.
