Yet, with all its advantages, the new Missal was published as if it were a work put together by professors, not a phase in a continual growth process. Such a thing never happened before. It is absolutely contrary to the laws of liturgical growth, and it has resulted in the nonsensical notion that Trent and Pius V had “produced” a Missal four hundred years ago.
— Josef Cardinal Ratzinger (1986)

My favorite piece was the Sanctus, conducted so well by Dr. Calabrese. Those sacred melodies continued in my head for months afterward.
