“As late as 1834, British society had many restrictions on any person not adhering to the Anglican church. For example, Roman Catholics could not attend a university, serve on a city council, be a member of Parliament, serve in the armed forces, or even serve on a jury.”

Many of our readers appreciate the hymn book by Fr. Matthew Britt. Others are familiar with “Pange Lingua” by Alan McDougall & Fr. Adrian Fortescue. This hymn book by Fr. Byrnes is very similar to both, since it contains literal translations, poetic translations, descriptions of the authors, explanations of the meters, and much more!
