"The Sacrifice is celebrated with many solemn rites, none of which should be deemed useless or superfluous. On the contrary, all of them tend to display the majesty of this august sacrifice, and to excite the faithful, when beholding these saving mysteries, to contemplate the divine things which lie concealed in the Eucharistic Sacrifice."
— Catechism of the Council of Trent (1566)

Dom Gajard on Vernacular Adaptations & Pius XII Psalter
published 4 December 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

FOUND THE FOLLOWING letter engaging. It was written by Dom Gajard, perhaps the greatest Gregorian conductor of all time. It was translated by a Jesuit priest named Paul Callens, who taught Gregorian chant in Corpus Christi, TX, for many years. Click here to view a picture of Fr. Callens conducting his Schola.
