A New Ceremonial Book for the Old Holy Week

Pax inter Spinas, the publishing house of the Monastère St Benoît in Brignoles, France, has just announced the upcoming publication of a ceremonial book specifically for the traditional rites of Holy Week as they were before the reform of 1955, as well as the vigil of Pentecost. It will include the relevant portions of the last edition of Fortescue-O’Connell before the reform (1953), edited by Dom Alcuin Reid in such a way that the single volume contains everything necessary to do Holy Week. The final publication price will depends on the amount of interest in the book, its final size after typesetting, etc., but it will certainly be a worthy edition, hardback with a marker ribbon, designed to last much reference over many Holy Weeks. To register interest, and to receive full publication details and a special pre-publication discount offer, please email the publisher by September at:
