      Thank you for this information. Could you elaborate on what you
      mean by a "sharp turnaround"? And also, does a "lectio continua"
      necessarily imply a three year lectionary? The 1549 and later
      English BCP use something very close to a lectio continua for the
      offices but it is only a one year cycle.

      Also, for the others that responded and mentioned a variety of
      practices where 3, 4, 5, or more lessons were read, I certainly
      have seen this, but this is really a separate issue to the three
      year lectionary, isn't it?
