This book is a must for any devotee of the Tridentine Rite. It gives essential information on every possible service you could imagine (Low Mass, Missa Cantata, High Mass, Pontifical High Mass, Solemn Vespers, even Tenenbrae). The book is aimed at those involved in the celebration of these ceremonies (i.e. the ordained ministers and altar servers) but has a wealth of information that would appeal to any lay person. Written in an accesible style it proves that the Tridentine Mass is not just a relic of the past but appeals to people of all ages. The foreward by H.E. Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos is immensly interesting and proves that the old Mass is lawful and here to stay. Expensive- but worth every penny.
