Ordo notes for the second week after Easter (April 15-21)

This week's Ordo notes on the Benedictine Office using the 1962 rubrics are set out below.

If you are new to the Office, you can more detailed notes on how to say the traditional Benedictine Office starting here.

Note that we are currently in the season of Eastertide, which has special rubrics and texts which you can find more on here.

And for those interested in the Matins responsories, I've updated my notes on this week's responsories with links to recordings of them where available.

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.
ff = and following pages

Note there is a choice of offices, effectively treating it either as a third class feast (two nocturns at Matins; antiphons and psalms of the day at Lauds), or de facto second class (using Common of a Confessor Bishop with some proper texts of the feast).  The notes below are based on the first option.

Matins: Invitatory and hymn from the Common of a Confessor Bishop; one reading of the feast with responsory In medio Ecclesiae

Lauds: Antiphons and psalms of the day, rest from Common of a Confessor Bishop, MD (64)/AM 659, collect, MD [110]/AM 870

Prime to None: Antiphon etc from the Common
