I understand that lay use is not held to the same rules as in the monasteries, but why would Matins come before Compline?  That seems a little bit like having tomorrow morning's breakfast before this evening's dinner.

Matins can be anticipated after 2 PM, and this way ends the day with Compline and keeps Matins after first Vespers of the following feast, if it occur. I agree it seems a bit odd.

I don't have my Breviary in front of me right now so I can't give an exact reference, but the instructions in the front say that if you anticipate Matins it should be before Compline.  As mentioned above, I think it is so the day ends with Compline.
