Diurnal 

A Prayer Book containing the monastic Daily Office, except for the night hour of matins. Anglican versions include The Monastic Diurnal (1932, rev. 1963), with relevant material adapted from the English and American Prayer Books, and The Monastic Diurnal Noted (1952), a plainchant version edited by Winfred Douglas. The term is derived from the Latin for "daily," or "of a day."
