"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

“The Church, no doubt, has always kept, and wishes still to maintain everywhere, the language of her Liturgy; and, before the sad and violent changes of the sixteenth century, this eloquent and effective symbol of unity of faith and communion of the faithful was, as you know, cherished in England not less than elsewhere. But this has never been regarded by the Holy See as incompatible with the use of popular hymns in the language of each country. Such hymns, moreover, are useful to familiarize the people with the great truths of faith, and to keep alive their devotion.”
— LEO XIII, POPE (8 June 1898)

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 . . . •
