The Psalter contains the ordinary parts of the Office that are sung through on a regular basis: the Psalms, distributed amongst the Hours of Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers and Compline for each day of the week; the ordinary Antiphons for the Psalms; the ordinary Hymns for each Hour; the Canticles; the Preces, &c. In the Sarum Psalter Matins and Lauds of Sunday comes first, followed by Prime, Terce, Sext and None for the week. Then follows Matins and Lauds for the weekdays, Monday through Saturday. Next comes Vespers from Sunday through to Saturday, followed by Compline for the week. Compline includes its Propers for the seasons and feasts of the year.
(After Lauds of Sunday and Lauds of Monday appear the common Memorials throughout the year.)
