Obviously the Church gave us the tradition of being whole preoccupied with the Passion this week in order to draw near to Him through the practices and meditations of the week, not just to see if we can do it...
The church gives us different seasons because we built to need variety and by focusing on one aspect of Christ's work at one season, then another later, this is the most effective way for us not to grow lukewarm or cold, but to always have Christ's acts for our salvation presented to us anew so that they remain fresh to us and we do not start taking them for granted.
An EO writer said that if we find we've passed through lent without taking the time to repent, fast, pray, and partake in the spirit of the season, and find ourselves in Pentecost, the correct response is not to wish to have lent back so that we can do it right, but to focus on the season of Pentecost and it's joy, and participate in that as much as we can now.
The church gives us different meditations and practices in different seasons so that we grow, learn discipline, meditate on various aspects... If we just do whatever we feel like we will end up in a very narrow spirituality, contemplating the mysteries that appeal to us and neglecting others, following our own will and not learning to subject it, not for bragging rights of saying I subjected it, but as practice to subject it to His will.
Orthodoxy is cyclical by nature. And we benefit from it by focusing on now, and being present in the current season. It is medicine given to us by the Church. We cannot say, medicine is not an end in itself, it is a means, so I will neglect the medicine and focus in the end, doing whatever I feel will make we well and not taking the medecine the physician gave me.
The rites of Holy Week are sufficient to fill the whole week. There is plenty of time every other week of the year for all sorts of hymns with every mood. But this week we narrow ourselves only to the contemplation of this week: the suffering and death that pave the way to resurrection. There is no need to look for readings, or prayers, or hymns besides the several hundred page book appointed to be gotten through in full this week. And there is nothing more fitting or beneficial to us than respecting this holiest week of the year. Not to say look, I did everything in this big book, but because it is the perfect medicine given to us right now. Chemo patients receive doses of medicine that are painful, then have to recover before receiving the next. This week is our most powerful medecine, and then we'll have Pentecost to rest and recover, when no sermons are even to be said, before heavy medecine is used again.
If you believe that the practices you chose are more fitting medicine than this prescription passed down from the fathers, that is your business, no one is telling you what to do. But to call this venerable and beneficial tradition crazy because you don't do it... your loss.
