  1. Fr, Ruff,

    This need not remain posted if need be, but in looking at the preview of your brochure for use at the NPM conference, I noticed on p. 5 that the incipit of the Ave Maria began with an F# and not a G, which is what I’m used to. Don’t know if it’s a typo, or if I am in error, just wanted to point that out. I know how nit-picky musicians and liturgists can get and how vitriolic our discussion can oft become. Trying to save some pain. For what it’s worth. Look forward to having you in Dallas in October.

    1. Brent, thanks much and I appreciate and need the sharp eye of others. However,… and I want to break it to you gently… this is the corrected version. It was like this already in the 1934 Antiphonale Monasticum. But the 1912 less corrected Antiphonale Romanum is what most everyone learned. The recent Antiphonale Monasticum, released in several volumes over the last few years, also has this correction. I don’t have the new Roman antiphonale here, it’s in my monastery room, but I’m confident it will also be corrected since it always agrees with the new monastical Antiphonale.

  2. Thanks so much for the “gentle correction”. Always glad to learn something new and have a feeling that lots of people will be learning something new in the next couple of years as we go through this new text that is looming before us. LOL

  3. It started today, but Dr. Tortolano has a five-day class in Mystic, CT. Always in the middle of grading finals!
