“One must pray to God not only with theologically precise formulas, but also in a beautiful and dignified way. The Christian community must make an examination of conscience so that the beauty of music and song will return increasingly to the liturgy.”
— Pope Saint John Paul II (26 February 2003)

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!
