"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

“Sacred music, being a complementary part of the solemn liturgy, participates in the general scope of the liturgy, which is the glory of God and the sanctification and edification of the faithful. It contributes to the decorum and the splendor of the ecclesiastical ceremonies, and since its principal office is to clothe with suitable melody the liturgical text proposed for the understanding of the faithful, its proper aim is to add greater efficacy to the text, in order that through it the faithful may be the more easily moved to devotion and better disposed for the reception of the fruits of grace belonging to the celebration of the most holy mysteries.”
— Pope Saint Pius X

CATECHISM of GREGORIAN CHANT • 110+ pages • Author: The Very Rev. Gregory Hügle, O. S. B. : : Prior of Conception Abbey, Conception, Mo. • Publishing Information: 1928 (1944) : : No. 5945 : : J. Fischer & Bro . . . New York : : 119 West 40TH Street • Imprimatur by Cardinal Hayes. This 1944 version is the third printing of the book. He follows the “pure Vaticana” and completely avoids the issue of the mora vocis in complicated melodies. For him, it doesn’t even exist and is therefore not worth mentioning . . . •
