Little Office Question

I've got a question for my fellow traditionalist-leaning bloggers out there. I'm not so thrilled with my 1980s edition of the Little Office anymore...the text just seems too "vanilla" & it doesn't keep my attention any longer.

I was looking online and I see there are 1904 and 1914 editions out there. But I can't seem to find out how they are different or which one is "better" (if there is such a thing). Any suggestions?

The Vanilla Little Office goes well with the Vanilla NAB or should I say Amended Revised New Am Bible.

I'm one of those trads who prefers
the older version. As a third order
Carmelite, I tried the 1980's
version and with all the updated
language, I found it dry. So I
returned to the older version and,
found it to be more suitable for
myself. The old format is more to
my liking (Matins, Lauds, Prime tierce, Sext, None, Vespers and
Compline).
