Explanation of the Holy Mass
by Dom Prosper Guéranger, O.S.B.
2007 republication of the 1885 English translation from the French by Dom Laurence Shepherd, O.S.B.
266 pages, 5 x 7 in., hardcover binding with gold lettering on cover and spine, a dust jacket and a marker ribbon.
This book is a posthumous compilation of the notes taken during conferences explaining the prayers and ceremonies of the Holy Mass, given by Dom Prosper Guéranger, founder and first abbot of Solesmes, to his monks, in the mid 19th century.
The Ordinary of the Holy Mass is also included in the appendix, in Latin and English. Note that the English translation is the one currently in use in the late 19th century, when literal vernacular translations from the Latin were not permitted, but rather only approximate ones.
