Been praying Matins since late January, started to incorporate Compline soon after. Lauds I found beyond comprehension for quite awhile. But, I am getting the hang of it. But, today, I used the Common of the Feast  Antiphons for Lauds with Scheme 1 Psalms for Sunday. It seemed to make a lot more sense. But, I noticed that Lazslo's site, and the Breviary site run by the Sedes prayed Thursday Psalms with the one Alleluia Antiphon. How does one know when to use the Common and when to use the Scheme for the day of the week? Any tips you can share? Or is it a matter of personal preference?

The Sunday psalms are used on excepted feasts, otherwise you use the ferial psalter (basically).  Thursday was the feast of Ss. Nereus, Achilleus, Domitilla, and Pancras; commemoration of the octave at Lauds; Vespers was of I Vespers of St. Robert Bellarmine, commemorations of II Vespers of Ss. Nereus et al. and of the Octave.

For common octaves, such as this one, the office of days within the octave will use the ferial psalter every day, with the semidouble rite.  The lessons of the 1st nocturn with their responsories are from the season.  Which edition of the office are you using?
