This volume forms a pair with EC59. The Priest’s Book includes all the texts, tones, chants and ritual directions for the priest at Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Use of Salisbury throughout the year. Based on the edition of the Sarum Missal issued by Prévost in 1528, it is a practical resource (the size of an altar book), as well as an edition for study and teaching. There are ritual instructions for the deacon, subdeacon and four servers, and written-out examples of intoned Epistles and Gospels. All Latin texts have English translations. The Ordinal sets out no fewer than twenty different orders for daily and weekly Lady Mass, and the Directory indicates when each is to be used.
