But first, a brief history:
In the Summer of 2009:
- Mellar published the "Daily Office" containing a general layout of the "Divine Office" to be prayed at the morning and evening of each day. The office consisted of a psalm, based on the day of the week, and an antiphon which changed if the office was celebrated in the morning or in the evening.
- The "Daily Office" was renamed as the "Stormwind Office" which was a bit more developed than its predecessor, in that it included a short reading. Much of the original design remained the same.
- Archbishop Columban V promulgated the "Codex of Hours (3rd Edition)". This edition made a separate cycle for psalms at morning and evening prayer, while also adding a smaller office for night prayer. Collects were added from the Codex of Rites and responsories were taken from the Lectionary readings of the day. Offices were added for Saints and various occasions.
- The revision process of the Codex of Hours was started by Dom Michael Nicolls and Archbishop-Emeritus Caspius.
