  • It does not account for feast days and anything in the Festal Triodion.
  • It does not include any Lenten hourly services, extra psalter readings, or anything from the Lenten Triodion.
  • It does not contain anything from the Pentecostarion.
  • It does not contain Great Compline.
  • It does not contain Synaxarion for Matins.
  • It does not contain the Typica.
  • It does not contain any Canons and/or Akathists such as the Akathist to the Mother of God at Compline.
