“I prefer to say nothing, or very little, about the new calendar, the handiwork of a trio of maniacs who suppressed—with no good reason—Septuagesima and the Octave of Pentecost and who scattered three quarters of the Saints higgledy-piddledy, all based on notions of their own devising!”

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.
