Please can you advise on the correct place of the Office Hymn at Mattins? (At Evensong it precedes the Gospel Canticle, Magnificat.)

Mattins
Also spelt Matins in some places. This service (like Evensong) was created by Thomas Cranmer from the sevenfold monastic cycle of prayer. Although less common these days, it still takes place in most British Cathedrals before or after the Eucharist on a Sunday morning. The service has prayers and readings from the old and new testaments of the bible. In this service, the order of music is:

Introit (optional)
Preces
Venite (psalm 95)
Psalms
Te Deum (or Benedicite - often in Lent)
Jubilate Deo (psalm 100) (or Benedictus - often in Lent)
Responses
Anthem
Hymn(s)
Voluntary

The equivalent place in Mattins would be before the Te Deum (ie after the Psalm(s)).
