In Memoriam

Today, August 26, marks the fourth anniversary of the death of Professor László Dobszay (1935-2011), a true Catholic gentleman and scholar. Many, perhaps most, readers of NLM will have heard of him and of his substantial contributions to sacred music and liturgical scholarship, two of his English-language publications being The Bugnini-Liturgy and the Reform of the Reform (Church Music Association of America, 2007) and The Restoration and Organic Development of the Roman Rite (T&T Clark/Continuum, 2010). I was blessed to have known him personally as a colleague in the “new Liturgical Movement” and as a friend. Please say a prayer for the happy repose of his soul. Requiescat in pace Domini.
