Essentially the Missal of St. Pius V is the Gregorian Sacramentary; that again is formed from the Gelasian book which depends on the Leonine collection. We find the prayers of our Canon in the treatise “De Sacramentis” and allusions to it in the 4th century. So our Mass goes back, without essential change, to the age when it first developed out of the oldest liturgy of all. It is still redolent of that liturgy, of the days when Caesar ruled the world and thought he could stamp out the faith of Christ, when our fathers met together before dawn and sang a hymn to Christ as to a God. The final result of our enquiry is that, in spite of unsolved problems, in spite of later changes, there is not in Christendom another rite so venerable as ours.

I am so grateful for the all support of my free “Mass in honor of St. Ralph Sherwin,” which has already been downloaded more than 9,000 times. However, my personal favorite setting of the “Holy, Holy, Holy” that I have composed is the one in honor of St. Anne Line, which is found in the Vatican II Hymnal, along with 100+ pages of other settings in Latin/English.
