While in a very interesting bookshop off Cuba Street in Wellington, I found a useful book: Lauds, Vespers and Compline in English (Collegeville: The Liturgical Press, 1965). It advertises itself as being reprinted from (in conformity with Sacrosanctum concilium) "an officially approved edition of the Roman Breviary".
Therefore, I have this week (recovering from my holiday) been using this book for Lauds, Vespers and Compline: it's curious to pray in English again. I find the translation of the psalms used - the Confraternity version adapted to the Breviary - strangely reminiscent of the Grail Version. It is most useful as regards the Office Hymns, which it wisely translates as prose.
Some of the phrases used are a little odd: this morning, for the feast of St Agnes, the Sunday psalms being appointed, I was amazed to read in the Benedicite, "You dolphins and all water creatures, bless the Lord"! I thought cetus meant whale; but perhaps the translators understood it to signify cetaceans in general.
