Laudes Festivae 1940

Here is a lovely book, Laudes Festivae, sent to us that we've made available. I asked Fr. Anthony Ruff to introduce it and thereby avoid otherwise inevitable inaccuracies:

Laudes Festivae, which means “Festive Praise” not “Festive Lauds,” is a most useful collection which brings under one cover many sung elements of the preconciliar liturgy for more solemn days which are otherwise found scattered throughout many other books: for example, the Roman martyrology for Christmas (better known as the Christmas proclamation), and the sung Gospel for Mass on solemn feast days, the sung lessons of Triduum vigils (better known as Tenebrae).
