Are you? or will you be responsible for Musica Sacra at Masses in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite ? If so, Don Capisco has a valuable hint for you. Check out the “motu proprio resources” now available from Preserving Christian Publications in Boonville NY. John Parrot and Brian Pouliot hav e now reprinted classic titles such as J.B.O’Connel’s “Celebration of Mass” and Fortescue’s “The Mass” as well as Fr Weller’s classic translation of the complete Roman Ritual in three volumes, The Roman Martyrology, the 1962 Rubrics of Missal and Breviary and Connelly’s Hymns of the Roman Liturgy in Latin and English. A high-quality repromt of the 1962 Benziger Missale Romanum in altar size with US dioc esan supplement, is on the way. The legitimate liturgist warmly recommends all of these volumes.
The competent Kapellmeister greets even more enthusiastically the musical reprints now available : the 1962 Desclee Liber Usualis and two very useful organ accompaniments by Achille P. Bragers of the old Pous X School in New York : low-key accompaniment for the complete Vatican Kyriale (including all the ad libitum Ordinary chants, the Requiem, the High Mass responses, etc.) and the two volumes (bound in one) of the organum comitans to the Proprium de Tempore, the seasonal Propers for Sundays and great feasts of the entire church year. The appearance of these volumes is indeed cause for rejoicing ! To PCP, tante grazie ! VOX 315/942-6338, firstname.lastname@example.org; www.pcpbooks.com.
