I have just been looking at the Easter Vigil, in the new translation of the Roman Missal. Others have noted the return of the bees in the Exultet - doesn't their absence show how poorly we were served by the previous translation.
What our director of music pointed out was the rubric that says all nine readings must be used "whenever this can be done...". "Nevertheless, where more serious pastoral circumstance demand it, the number of readings ... maybe reduced". I think this will change the shape of the Vigil in many places, at least where the rubrics are read.
In the UK I think it is quite normal to reduce them to four, hence forth it is seven, though I am not sure what "serious pastoral reason" might mean to lead a priest to reduce the number; presumably if he celebrating the Vigil in a prison camp.
The other thing I am pleased to see is the ninefold Easter Alleluia is now in the Missal, together with its music.
