About this blogger:
"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

“Church officials frequently asked Tomás Luis de Victoria for his opinion on cathedral appointments because of his fame and knowledge. He was faithful to his position as convent organist even after his professional debut as an organist, and never accepted any extra pay for being a chapelmaster. Held in great esteem, his contract allowed him frequent travel away from the convent, and he attended Palestrina's funeral (in Rome) in 1594.”
— Dr. Robert Stevenson, 1961 (mod.)

Liturgica Website Reprints "Rituale Romanum"
published 9 November 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

Y WAY OF the Orbis Catholicus blog, we hear that a reprint of the RITUALE ROMANUM is now available. This is being made possible by liturgica.net, which carefully reprints Latin liturgical books for the Extraordinary Form.

If you visit their website, you can see sample pages. They seem to be doing really high quality work, and here’s what they say about their latest production:

Many of its features, unique in liturgical publication today, will cause this Rituale Romanum to stand out as a liturgical book that indeed epitomizes the very best that can be produced in large quantities in our day. Together with our most important partners for the outer appearance of the Rituale – the printer and the bookbinder – we take pride in having overcome some major production difficulties.

Similar to what was done inside the Campion hymnal, they don’t just xerox copy the old wood cuts: rather, they digitize and enhance them.
