Demand for the Gregorian Missal

It was more than six months ago that Solesmes very graciously permitted the CMAA to put the Gregorian Missal-an English language edition of the Graduale for Sundays and major feats--online for free download. Since then, it has become one of the most highly trafficked sectors of Just now I received a call from a man who was trying to order 30 copies. The main dealers in the physical copies of this book are completely sold out. This not only reflects a wonderful high demand for the book but illustrates how posting material free online can increase the demand for the hard copy. This points to a possible future for the modern Graduale, the Triplex, and other important books from Solesmes.
