My opinion is that we do not need another typikon yet. It’s a long game. Perhaps the more immediate issue that needs to be addressed, at least here in the States, is education of the clergy, chanters, and yes- laity- of why following a typikon matters and how to follow it. It seems that the younger generation of priests coming out of Holy Cross really cares more about services in general. This is wonderful. Let’s see if this trickles down to the chanters and people. Then, once the knowledge base is stronger, we can all have more confidence in changes in the typikon made for pastoral or other actual reasons, and perhaps a new typikon can be written.
