“One would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.”
— Ven. Pope Pius XII (20 November 1947)

A GENEROUS FRIEND has sent something curious:

I found this old Kyriale accompaniment, but it no has the name of author or editor. In the last page (index) there is a clue, but I don’t know much about it; it seems that its from the Solesmes house. Please, feel free to publish this book in the Lalande library of rare books. If you can figure the name of author and editor, and the year of publication, please let me know.
