Is it allowed to pray all three psalms from Sunday Night Prayer (Evenings 1 & 2) every day of the week?

I noticed a rubric of the Liturgy of the Hours says that on all weekdays one may pray the psalms from Sunday Night Prayer, but there are two forms of Night Prayer on Sundays after evening prayers 1 & 2. Is it permissible to pray psalms 4, 134 and and 91 all together everyday? Or does one have to choose between psalms 4 & 134 and psalm 91? Thanks!


All three Psalms used to comprise Sunday Compline (Night Prayer) before Vatican II. It is certainly allowed to pray them every day. Many monasteries still do.
