"That good youth, recognizing the dangers in which he was involving himself in so perilous a journey, declared at his departure that the desire of serving God was leading him into a country where he surely expected to meet death." — Fr. Jerome Lalemant, speaking of St. Jean de Lalande

Had the Church never spoken on this matter, it would still be repugnant to our Catholic people’s sense of what is fit and proper in the holiest of places, that a priest should have to struggle through the prayers of the Holy Mass, because of such tunes as “Alice, where art thou?” the “Vacant Chair,” and others of more vulgar title, which, through the carelessness or bad judgment of organists, sometimes find their way into our choirs.
— Preface to a Roman Catholic Hymnal (1896)

• Organum comitans ad graduale parvum quod juxta Editionem Vaticanam • Organ accompaniments by Max Springer • (x, 510, iii pages) • 1910 Ratisbonae [i.e. Regensburg] : Sumptibus Alfred Coppenrath (H. Pawelek). •
     Notes: Includes bizarre version of the Veni Sancte Spiritus, full of ninth chords and Dominant seventh chords. The strangest thing about this book is that it omits the Sundays after Epiphany AND the Sundays after Pentecost. I have photocopied the entire PROPRIUM DE TEMPORE, some VOTIVE MASSES starting with the 4 for Our Lady, the entire KYRIALE, REQUIEM, and some COMMUNE TONES at the end. HOWEVER, I have not copied the COMMUNE SANCTORUM, due to time and money constraints. It is, therefore, an INCOMPLETE COPY
