* This evening's Vespers are the first instance since the CTO started of two consecutive Double feasts, of equal rank, in which the Office changes midway through Vespers at the Chapter. In the original Tridentine Kalendar and now in the CTO, this type of concurrence is much rarer than its near ubiquity from the 19th. century until the eve of the 1955 "simplifications".
