    Gloria in excelsis, or the hymn used in place of it, is sung or said from Christmas Day through the Feast of the Epiphany; on Sundays from Easter Day through the Day of Pentecost, on all the days of Easter Week, and on Ascension Day; and at other times as desired; but it is not used on the Sundays or ordinary weekdays of Advent or Lent.
  • "Forty days" hymns in Lent
    • 142: "Lord, who throughout these forty days"
    • 143: "The glory of these forty days"
    • 150: "Forty days and forty nights"
  • The Lamentations by Edward Cuthbert Bairstow (1874–1946)

  1. You suggest that Prayer D is "too festive" for Lenten use. But among the Orthodox, it is precisely during Lent and Holy Week that the anaphora of St. Basil the Great--of which Prayer D is an abridged variation--is used. So might not the use of Prayer D be actually more appropriate on these days than not?
