“I grew up listening to Lessons & Carols from Cambridge and that was Advent-Christmas for me. Then I moved to Rome and discovered Rorate Masses, the Novena of the Immaculate Conception with the Tota Pulchra, the Christmas Novena, the O Antiphons, the Aspiciens, the Rorate Coeli, the Alma Redemptoris Mater: that's Advent for me now. I am glad to see seminarians all over the United States doing Lessons & Carols, but are they learning our ancient Roman traditions alongside a 20th-century Anglican one?”
— Rev. Christopher Smith

published 14 January 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

ONSIGNOR SCHMITT was a great writer. On the other hand, he made plenty of errors as an editor (and admitted this in his autobiography). For example, he often spells Disciplina as “Discplinia,” and Joseph Gogniat as “Joseph Cogniat.” In the index, the below is referenced as “Nova Organdi,” instead of Nova Organi. Watershed first placed the Nova Organi Harmonia (NOH) online in 2008.
