A Voice For All Time, edited by Christopher Francis and Martin Lynch, is a collection of essays, many by distinguished scholars, which were originally addressed to meetings of the Association. As well as providing vivid comparisons with past centuries, they give a remarkable impression of what has happened to the liturgy of the Catholic Church during the last thirty years.

New Latin-English Sunday Missal

The Association published the first novus ordo New Latin-English Sunday Missal in 1982, since when there have been five reprints. With the coming of the new translation of the Mass in Advent 2010, the Association collaborated with the Catholic Truth Society in the publication of their New Sunday Missal and New Daily Missal. These missals have the whole of the Latin and English Altar Missals, side by side, plus the English texts of the Lectionary for all the years of the Lectionary cycle, and some fine colour illustrations from a medieval manuscript. Latin and English chants for congregations appear with musical notation. All rubrics are printed in red and there are suitable page marker ribbons. As far as we know, these are the only comprehensive congregational missals available to assist in full participation at Mass, whether in Latin or English, or a combination of the two, and the Association warmly commends them to all.

Plainsong For Parishes

Ordo Missae - In 1974 the Association commissioned a translation of the Order of Mass from Professor J A W Bennett. At that time there were no other parallel English translations of the then new rite available for congregations, and this book plugged that gap. The translation is not authorised for liturgical use, but was designed to illuminate the Latin text and render it in a traditional style of English. The book has long been out of print, but the text may be seen here. The English translation is copyright and may not be used for commercial purposes without the Association's permission in writing.
