The Vatican Gradual cheered our hearts by restoring the authentic form of the hymns therein. But there are very few hymns in the Gradual. We looked forward to the continuation of the same work, where it was so much more needed, in the Vesperal, and then in the new Breviary. Alas, the movement, for the present, has stopped. The new Vesperal and then the Breviary contain Urban VIII’s versions. So at present we have the odd situation that in the Gradual the old form of the hymns is restored; but when the same hymn (for instance “Vexilia regis”) comes again in the Vesperal, we must sing the seventeenth-century mangling.
— Adrian Fortescue (25 March 1916)

N CELEBRATION of the imminent release of the Saint Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal we have released this historic film. Campion and Newman were both Catholic priests, brilliant scholars, and prominent converts from Anglicanism. Newman’s poetry and that of his Oratorian confrères are emphasized in our book. Composer Kevin Allen has composed original hymn settings exclusively for the Campion hymnal.
