Thanks to the notice in Pray Tell, I ordered and received my copy of Simply Fred: A Tribute to Frederick R. McManus. Wonderful!
It was the measure of the man that he volunteered and prepared for me a twelve-page canonical memorandum to the US Bishops Committee on the Liturgy so that I could get permission to print By Flowing Waters: Chant for the Liturgy. And he wrote the Foreword (which perhaps should be included as the last item in his bibliography?).
UPDATE: I just finished the book (the first time in months I read a book in one day). Favorite parts: Kathleen Hughes’s remembrance, Fred’s tribute to Mary Perkins Ryan, and Fred’s last public words about his own legacy.
