This books consists of the following three critical documents, with an introductory commentary: Sacrosanctum Concilium itself; Pius X's classic text on sacred music; and Pius XII's encyclical "Mediator Dei" on the sacred liturgy.
Points highlighed by Dr. Jackson, either in this text and/or elswhere, include:
1) the fact these three documents should read as a tryptich; 2)that Mediator Dei is everywhere in SC (just not cited sufficiently); 3)that the Liturgy is the (penultimate) consummation of salvation history; 4) that the emphasis on sacrifice, adoration, and the eschaton have not been sufficiently stressed in Liturgy -- DESPITE what SC actually says; 5) that Gregorian Chant, according to SC, demands "pride of place" in the Liturgy.
