“Vatican II did not say anything about the direction of the celebrant. […] I love both directions of celebrating Mass. Both are full of meaning for me. Both help me to encounter Christ—and that is, after all, the purpose of the liturgy.”
— Christoph Cardinal Schönborn (February 2007)

National Catholic Register Mentions Watershed Hymnal
published 30 October 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

249 Latin M The National Catholic Register published an article on Sacred music a few days ago. Here are some excerpts:

HE HIGHEST FORM of song, as expressed in Sacrosanctum Concilium, the Second Vatican Council’s dogmatic constitution on the sacred liturgy, is Gregorian chant.

Despite most of them not having prior experience with the subject, they have been comfortable with learning it.   […]

Kurt Poterack cites the resurgence of the once-dormant Church Music Association of America, the publication of the Adoremus Hymnal, St. Michael Hymnal, St. Edmund Campion Hymnal and the sacred music from the Society of St. John Cantius and the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles, as examples of a renewal that “would have been unthinkable 20 to 30 years ago.”   [source]
