"From the Оctave of the Epiphany until the 1st Sunday in Lent"

I have already posted the Office hymns for Epiphany and its Octave - but imagine my surprise at finding, in Hymn melodies for the whole year from the Sarum Service books, something I'd never noticed before at all: a long section titled, "From the Оctave of the Epiphany until the 1st Sunday in Lent." There are 3 different hymns listed for every day of the week here - 21 different hymns all together.

I have finally begun to create posts for each of the weekdays for this period, and will add links here as they go up.  Meanwhile you can listen to audio files of most of these hymns at The "Weekday Propers Sung," according to the Lutheran Liturgical Prayer Brotherhood; the LLPB use is just about the same as the Sarum (although you won't find Mattins hymns there).  FYI, the LLPB prescribes these hymns for all "ordinary time" periods during the year:  for the short period between Epiphany and Lent, and also for the long period between Pentecost and Advent.
