Services too long? That is a typical complaint. Anyhow, there wasn't one monastic rite: There are at least two, the Studite and the Sabaite rites. The Studite Rite in combination with the abbreviations used in the Cathedral Rite is the basis of the services in most of the Greek-speaking churches (GOAA, Patriarchate of Constantinople, Church of Greece). The Sabaite Typikon is the one used by Jerusalem, the Church of Russia (ROCOR and MP) as the basis of their services, hence the greater number of Vigils in Russian parishes, even though the Vigils are not literally all night, they maintain the spirit and basic structure of the Sabaite Vigils. There is a third rite The rite of Mt. Athos, that is used on the Holy Mountain and those monasteries such as St. Anthony's in Arizona. There are more Vigils, as in the Sabaite Rite, and the Vigil literally lasts all night. I don't know the other details, but hopefully this helps. I just wanted to clarify that there is not one Monastic Rite, but multiple Monastic Rites.
