Explanation of the The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass View larger image

Rev. Father Martin von Cochem, of the Capuchin Order, wrote many erudite and edifying spiritual treatises. None of these, however, is equal in learning and in practical usefulness to his Explanation of the The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is compiled from the teaching of the holy Catholic Church, of the early fathers, of contemporary theologians and spiritual writers.

It is, moreover, written in an agreeable and impressive manner, and the perusal of it cannot fail to give the reader a better acquaintance with the nature of the Mass, to inflame him with devotion for it, and greatly to increase his desire to lose no opportunity of celebrating the Holy Sacrifice or assisting at it, as the case may be. 

Father Martin von Cochem was born at Cochem, on the Moselle, in the year 1625, and died at Waghausel in 1712. Over two hundred years have now elapsed since his Explanation of the Holy Mass was first published.

God alone knows how much good it has done to countless numbers of the faithful. Now, if at that time a book of this description was greatly wanted to bring Christians back to the true well-spring of grace, the right form of divine worship, the need for it is even more urgent in the present day, since, under existing circumstances, Catholics are exposed to still greater dangers than they then were, both in regard to faith and practice.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is, as Father von Cochem rightly says, an inexhaustible treasury, whence we all, sinners as well as just, may draw the riches we stand in want of. It is the fount of which we all must drink if we would remain steadfast in the practice of virtue or be purged from our sins. But who can appreciate aright, or make any use of, that of which he knows nothing?

Wherefore it is to be desired above all things in our own day to make the inestimable treasures that lie hidden in the holy Mass more widely known; and no better means of doing this can be found than by placing within the reach of all this Explanation of the Holy Mass, by Father Martin von Cochem.

Sacred Treasures of the Mass View larger image

The Altar of the Mass is the holy house of Nazareth, the crib of Bethlehem, the Egyptian place of exile, the hill of Calvary, the garden-tomb in which Our Saviour’s corpse reposed, and the Mount of Olives from which He ascended. The Passion, it is true, is that which is primarily represented and continued in the Holy Mass; yet the prayers and rites of the sacrifice refer, at times, to other mysteries. Thus the dropping of a part of the Sacred Host into the chalice, before the Agnus Dei, represents the reunion of Christ’s soul with His Body and Blood on the morning of the Resurrection. For a description of the many and beautiful analogies between the Eucharistic life of Our Lord and His sacred Infancy.

The Mass is truly a “Sacred Treasure,” and, alas, our cold, dead faith allows it to remain so. If we valued it as we ought, we would hurry every morning to the church, careless of the snows of winter and the heats of summer, in order to get a share of the riches of this treasure. The Saints knew the value of one Mass: that was a dark day in their calendar on which they were deprived of the happy privilige of saying or hearing Mass.

For example, although St. Francis de Sales was overburdened with apostolic work on the Mission of the Chablais, he made it a point never to miss his daily Mass. In order to keep his holy resolution, he had frequently to cross the river Drance, to the village of Marin, in which there was a Catholic church. It happened, in the winter of 1596, that a great freshet carried away a portion of the bridge over the stream, and the passengers were, in consequence, compelled to cross on a plank laid over those arches of the broken structure that had withstood the waters. Heavy falls of snow, followed by severe frosts, made this board very slippery, so that it became dangerous to attempt passing on it; but St. Francis was not to be deterred, for, despite the remonstrances of his friends, he made the perilous journey every morning, creeping over the icy plank on his hands and feet, thus daily risking his life rather than lose Mass. 

Sacred Treasures of the Mass by St. Leonard of Port Maurice will stir the soul to practice the Catholic faith with zeal and ardour.  This saintly writer truly inspires the Christian soul to strive for perfection through deep and devout devotion to the Mass.

These are the Sacraments View larger image

Biretta Books is proud to present this masterwork of the great Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen! These Are the Sacraments is a lucidly written presentation of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen is responsible for this memorable and dramatic book which defines the meanings of the Sacraments to man, their power, and their application.

Bishop Sheen first analyzes the necessity for the Sacraments and gives an explanation of their origin. Then he delves into each, beginning with the rebirth of the Christian at Baptism, continuing on with the strength received at Confirmation, the reception of the Body and Blood of Christ in Holy Communion, the forgiveness of sins in Penance, the anointing of the body in the Last Sacrament, the power of Consecration granted the men receiving Holy Orders, and the nuptial blessing obtained by those who receive Matrimony.

In his text, Bishop Sheen skillfully describes the elements particular to each Sacrament, defining the matter and form necessary for valid administration.

The Divine Romance touches on perennial themes and is a classic that has a power to heal, help and inspire the reader.

In his crisp pastoral style, Sheen describes the believer’s spiritual journey back to the Father with all of its ecclesial dimensions.

Christ guides our mystical journey and forms us into his very Body on Earth.

Who is She that Ascendeth, Healey Willan View larger image

Available Summer 2014

Who is She that Ascendeth by the Dean of Canadian Composers, Healey Willan, is a festive motet for SATB Choir (a capella) with divisi.

English-born and -trained Healey Willan is considered Canada’s most important church composer, among many other accomplishments. This extraordinary setting of a text for the Assumption of the VirginMary was dedicated to John Finlay Williamson and the famed Westminster Choir of Princeton, New Jersey. It has strikingly original harmonies which create a mood of mysticism rather than modernism. It rapidly and aptly shifts to adapt itself to the fast-changing changing imagery of the text. An outstanding brief choral work.

Healey Willan Society

To continue the work of promoting the music of Healey Willan, Mary Willan Mason, Healey Willan’s daughter, has bestowed upon Rev. Scott A. Haynes, SJC, a priest of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago, the responsibility of being the Trustee of the Estate of Healey Willan. To this end, the Healey Willan Society has been established to promote Willan’s music by bring back into print his musical compositions which have fallen out of print or which were never published.

With over 800 opus numbers, Willan was a highly active composer of sacred organ and choral music, orchestral and chamber music, operas and much more. In the field of sacred music, after Johann Sebastian Bach, Healey Willian is the most prolific composer.

The New Latin Edition is available now, but the New English Edition will be available by the end of summer.

About Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’

One year before the promulgation Pope Paul VI’s constitution De Sacra Liturgia, Jean Langlais prepared music for the celebration of the liturgy in the vernacular. He wrote some music for the Mass in French, but also, in English. Thus, Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem,’ composed between April and July 1962, was originally written in English and for use with the vernacular liturgy.

In composing this Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem,’ Langlais intended a simple musical form, composing a Mass for unison voices.  The Mass, accompanied by organ, may also “be sung throughout by Women alone or Men alone,” as Langlais indicated in the musical score published first in 1963 by The H.W.Gray Company, Inc.

The original English text was approved by the Diocesan Music Commission, but with the change of English translation in 1970, this original edition published by H.W. Gray in 1963 became obsolete for liturgical use.

Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C., working with Marie-Louise Langlais, has now prepared a new English edition of Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’ that may be used in conjunction with the third edition of the Roman Missal currently in use in the English-speaking world. Father Haynes and Mme. Langlais have also prepared a Latin edition of the Langlais Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem, making the Mass more universally available for liturgical use. Both the new English edition and the new Latin edition of the Missa ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’ are available through Biretta Books.

About Jean Langlais

Born on February 15, 1907, in La Fontenelle, Brittany, France, a small village near by the Mont Saint-Michel, Jean Langlais became blind from the age of two. Sent to the Paris National Institute for the Young Blind in 1918, he studied piano, violon, harmony and organ with great blind teachers among other Albert Mahaut and Andre Marchal.

Later, he entered the Paris National Conservatory of Music in Marcel Dupre organ class, obtaining a First Prize in 1930. In 1931, he received the “Grand Prix d’Execution et Improvisation des Amis de l’Orgue”, after having studied improvisation with Charles Tournemire. He ended his studies with a Composition Prize in Paul Dukas class at the Paris Conservatory in 1934.

Professor for forty years at the National Institute for the Young Blind, he also taught at the Paris Schola Cantorum where, between 1961 and 1976, he influenced both french and foreign students.
In 1945, he became the successor to Cesar Franck and Charles Tournemire at the prestigious organ tribune of Sainte-Clotilde in Paris. He left that position in 1987 at the age of 80, having been titular for 42 years.

A great recitalist, he played more than 300 concerts in North America. A prolific composer, his catalog of works comprises 254 opus numbers (organ, vocal and instrumental music).
Jean Langlais died in Paris, on May 8, 1991, at the age of 84.

The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described View larger image

On July 7, 2007, Pope Benedict XVI issued Summorum Pontificum, making the Tridentine Latin Mass of 1962 available to all the priests of the Latin Roman Rite. The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described is an invaluable resource for Roman Catholic priests wanting to learn to celebrate the Latin Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum.

This superb newly revised 1962 edition of The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described by Fortescue/O’Connell incorporates the current 1983 Code of Canon Law, as well as recent rulings of Ecclesia Dei.  It explains in vivid detail the intricate ceremonies of the “Mass of all Ages,” as well as the Divine Office, Benediction, Holy Week, and the complete liturgical year.

We are happy to offer The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described at the low price of $75.00 (USD), plus shipping and handling charges.

“A truly sumptuous edition of this classic work.” —Michael Davies

From the Preface of The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described

It is my pleasure to present this fourteenth edition of The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described, a work originally written by the noted scholar, the Reverend Doctor Adrian Fortescue, and subsequently revised many times by Canon J.B. O’Connell… The permission for the reintroduction into public worship of the Roman Missal according to the typical edition of 1962 dates from the issuance of the Letter Quattuor abhinc annos of 3 October 1984… The use of this missal was further encouraged by His Holiness Pope John Paul II in his Apostolic Letter Ecclesia Dei of 2 July 1988. Particularly since then there has been a growing desire for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in this venerable form of the Roman Rite on the part of a good number of the faithful… This development has rendered Dom Alcuin’s most recent revision of this manual on ceremonies a particularly felicitous one. May the publication of this new edition of a classic work contribute to “that blended ‘harmony’ which the earthly Church raises up to Heaven under the impulse of the Holy Spirit” (Ecclesia Dei 5, a)!

—Dario Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, President, Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, 17 June 2003.

Rites of Holy Week View larger image

The Venerable Pope Pius XII issued his restored order for Holy Week in the 1950’s.

To help priests in parishes to celebrate these intricate and beautiful ceremonies of Classic Roman Rite during this most sacred week of the liturgical year, Rev. Frederick R. McManus wrote a marvelous guide to the restored order of Holy Week in 1956 entitled “Rites of Holy Week.”

For the parish or chapel wanting to offer the ceremonies of Holy Week with the 1962 Missale Romanum (Extraordinary Form), this will be an indispensable guide to help the clergy and altar boys accurately rehearse the ceremonies, the sacristan to attend the needs of the sanctuary, sacristy and church, and the musicians to prepare the proper liturgical music.

-PREPARING FOR HOLY WEEK
-INSTRUCTIONS AND SERMONS
-THE MUSIC OF HOLY WEEK
-PREPARATIONS
-CEREMONIAL DIRECTIONS
-DIAGRAMS
-ORDER OF STANDING AND SITTING
-A COMMENTARY FOR HOLY WEEK

Missale Romanum 1962 - Travel Size Altar Missal for the Traditional Latin Mass
Editio iuxta Typicam

This is the first printing of the Missale Romanum 1962 edition with ecclesiastical approval in years. Several priests were involved in the publishing of this Missale. One could say, quite literally, that the experience of many years of daily celebration of the Holy Mass has been incorporated in its design.

With great attention to detail, care was taken to have an easily readable font, clear design and a refined setting. The margins should be large enough and the paper smooth.

A Complete Catholic Prayer Book With Epistles and Gospels for Every Sunday and Holyday of the Year. While this reprint INCLUDES such hi-quality features as a bonded leather softcover, rounded corners, sewn binding, gilded page edges, a black marking ribbon and more, you’re probably just wondering what’s printed inside!

This all-time classic prayer book comes completely filled to overflowing with prayers and devotions cherished by generations of Catholics!

Along with the usual array of traditional morning and evening prayers, litanies, novenas, Stations of the Cross, prayers for the sick and dying, and more. Also included are more rare devotions for: The Mass of Catechumens, Calendar, Holy Days, Special Feasts, Holy Week, Paschaltide, Ember Days, Rogation Days, Days of the Week, Seasons of the Year, Months of the Year, and more!

For devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, an entire collection of prayers exists including a Holy Hour and the famous Forty Hours’ Adoration once practiced in every parish church!

This incredible pocket-size prayer book also includes for the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form). Ordinary texts of the Mass (in Latin and English),Sunday Epistles and Gospels (English only),Propers for the Requiem and Nuptial Mass (in Latin and English), Sunday Vespers, the other sacramental rites such as Baptism and Extreme Unction (in English), and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

Peppered throughout with symbolic lithographs, the hi-quality scans of this book’s text matches that of the original printing. This reprint is current with the traditional 1962 Missale Romanum by inserting an updated Table of Moveable Feasts (good till 2041!) and St. Joseph’s name in the Roman Canon.

Customer Reviews

Upon receiving the “Blessed Be God” prayerbook, I immediately fell in love with it. It is a great book. It is not a giant prayerbook with devotions and readings and meditations for every day of the year, but simply, it packs meaningful prayers, novenas, and vespers, (Not to mention loads of devotions, litanies, and Latin-to-English masses!) in just over 700 pages! A normal prayer book would take over 1,000 or more pages to do that. If you want a prayerbook that has lots of traditional prayers, but is not giant and weighs 50 pounds, this is the book for you. The best part is its size. Even with over 300 prayers, it would still be considered a pocket prayerbook. Gold laced pages and cover, beautiful illustrations, and a silk ribbon, it is a small but powerful, beautiful prayerbook. No Catholics library would be complete without this book. Only con: the book is hard to keep open when reading, but hey! This is still a great, compact prayerbook. A must have.

For traditional Roman Catholics, this is simply the best prayer book in English. The language throughout the book is in the Douay-Rheims style of traditional English. All of the prayers are written for the sake glorifying God through beautiful prosaic and poetic prayers and devotions. In addition, this is one of the most comprehensive prayer books you can find including the Order of the Mass (in English and Latin) as well as prayers and devotions for all occasions. I can’t recommend this prayer book enough.

In order to expand both classicism and romanticism, he has developed a highly ordered system of composition, employing a large number of pitches related through the ratios of integers.  He has composed solo works, orchestral works, choral works and chamber works.

He believes music, whether it be for concert or for worship, should have a positive influence on the listener.  His specific purpose in life is to compose music that will help people better to appreciate true peace, joy and the glory of God.
