"In the place of liturgy as the fruit of development came fabricated liturgy. We abandoned the organic, living process of growth and development over centuries, and replaced it—as in a manufacturing process—with a fabrication, a banal on-the-spot product."
— Pope Benedict XVI, describing the postconciliar liturgical reforms

PDF Download: Rossini "Parochial Hymnal" (1936)
published 23 December 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

526 Rossini Hymnal ATHER Carlo Rossini published an important hymnal in 1936. Until now, it’s never been made available online, not even by Google Books or the Internet Archive. Please consider this book your Christmas present from Corpus Christi Watershed:

      * *  Parochial Hymnal: Carlo Rossini (1936)

It’s a very nice hymnal—when compared to the others available at that time—and contains many interesting features, such as Rossini’s simplified version of the Dies irae and his simplified organ accompaniment for the Asperges me.
