Overview

This veritable handbook of the Roman Liturgy for the so-called "Great Week," or Holy Week, commemorating the chief historical events in the Christian narrative of the redemptive passion and death of Jesus Christ, consolidates the "unreconstructed" liturgical texts from the Roman Missal and Roman Breviary from before the reforms of the early 1950s. Abbot Cabrol, an early twentieth-century liturgist of unparalleled ability, renders the liturgical texts in the vernacular with notable grace and clarity, while his historical and theological commentaries add context and meaning to these most venerable and antiquated of all rites within the Roman Catholic liturgy.

About the Author

Abbot Cabrol (1855-1937) made his vows as a Benedictine in 1877 at Solesmes, was ordained a priest in 1882, and served as Prior there beginning in 1890. In 1896 he became the first Prior of St. Michael's in Farnborough, England, a daughter house of the Solemses Abbey, and, when the former was raised to an Abbey in 1903, Cabrol became its first Abbot. He authored some dozen books on the liturgy and liturgical history, and his research and study in France, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany contributed to La Paleógraphie Musicale.
