This hymnal for most of this past century has been acclaimed as the standard and most popular Catholic choir hymnal in the United States from the 1920s until the 1960s. This is a masterful reprint of the 1941 edition. It contains a complete collection of approved English and Latin Hymns, Motets, Masses and Liturgical Music for the various seasons of the Ecclesiastical Year. This beautiful, easy to read, and complete edition also contains the organ and piano accompaniment along with four-part music.
