 Our Description


Vatican II mandated that the Church's "treasury of sacred music is to be preserved and cultivated with great care" -in particular, Gregorian chant and Latin were to retain pride of place.  That's the last most Catholic heard of either.


But a half-century before Vatican II, the great priest-liturgist Adrian Fortescue was doing for his own parishioners what the Church would later demand.  How?  By compiling the greatest Latin hymns of the ages-with his own exquisite translations-into one volume, for singing and meditation.

This new facsimile edition reproduces the 1913 edition-as set by Stanley Morison, the finest typographer of his time.  It also includes Fr. Fortescue's original Preface and a new Afterword by Michael Davies.

Please note that this book contains the words only - no musical notation.
