“Place the missal in the hand of the faithful so that they may take part more easily and more fruitfully in the Mass; and that they faithful, united with the priest, may pray together in the very words and sentiments of the Church.”

The Organ Book of Adrian Fortescue
published 17 July 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

649 Fortescue Organ Book HARLES COLE, writing for NLM, has posted pictures of Fr. Fortescue’s special organ book. This book is now in the Westminster Archdiocesan Archives (but it would still be perfectly serviceable at Letchworth for the Extraordinary Form). It contains Fortescue’s instructions for the organist at Sung Mass, for the organ at Vespers and Compline, and for the celebration of Sunday and weekday Benediction.

I always wanted to see it, although the organ accompaniments are nothing special, on account of its historical value. Thank you, Maestro Cole, for saving me the trouble of traveling to England!
