The pre-1955 Rite (used here) described in 2 articles, here: http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2009/04/compendium-of-1955-holy-week-revisions_09.html#.WsF-Sy4bPcs
**AND here: http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2009/04/compendium-of-1955-holy-week-revisions_11.html#.WsF-Ty4bPcs
**Some of the more noticeable differences: the deacon carries a 3-candle pole (“reed”) into the church, rather than the Pascal candle and the congregation is not given candles at this point in the liturgy; the Old Testament readings (“Prophecies”) are mostly different than those of the 1955 or 1970 Rite; there is no rite of renewal of baptismal promises; the ancient role of the sub-deacon is more significant, with his role lessened in the 1955 Rite—in preparation for completely suppressing the sub-deaconate in the 1960s.
