“The authority of the Pope is not unlimited. It is at the service of Sacred Tradition. Still less is any kind of general ‘freedom’ of manufacture, degenerating into spontaneous improvisation, compatible with the essence of faith and liturgy. The greatness of the liturgy depends—we shall have to repeat this frequently—on its lack of spontaneity.”
— Josef Cardinal Ratzinger (2000)

SECONDLY, HERE IS MY SETTING IN ENGLISH, which uses the translation by Edward Caswall from the Lyra Catholica. Included (in one file) are separate versions for organ or piano and with optional lower key.
