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?
