Matins: the monastic nighttime liturgy, ending at dawn, of the canonical hours. In the Roman Catholic pre-Vatican-II breviary, it is divided into three nocturns. The name “matins” originally referred to the morning office also known as lauds.  In the Latin based languages like French and Italian matin or mattino means morning.
