Notes:

1. The CTO adds one feast beyond the 1568/1570 Kalendar, namely, S. Titus on 6 Feb (as a simplex to parallel the Tridentine simplex feast of S. Timothy on 24 Jan.).

2. The CTO does not accept the post-Tridentine additions of S. Andrew Corsini (4 Feb), S. Romuald (7 Feb.) and S. John of Matha (8 Feb.), all because they lack universal cult.

3. The CTO raises S. Agatha to a double feast whilst it was a semidouble in 1570. We do so to have her feast match the same dignity of the other prominent Virgin-Martyrs, namely, Ss. Agnes, Lucy, and Cecilia, especially considering the proper antiphons given.

Overall, the CTO, like the original TO, ushers in a growing ferial cycle following Candlemas. The newer kalendaria of recent centuries seemed to want to extend the festal spirit of the Christmas cycle beyond Candlemas with two more weeks of mostly duplex feasts only to shift abruptly to a barren, ferial cycle, which may or may not correspond with the onset of Septuagesima. The CTO aims to restore a more gradual shift from festal to ferial prominence in the month of February.

* In Dominical Offices when the Te Deum is omitted (and hence, a ninth respond is added), there is also no ninth lesson for a commemorated saint. There was an erratum on the original posting concerning this, and we thank Mr. Gregory DiPippo of New Liturgical Movement for clarifying this rubric for us.
