The booklet for the upcoming papal inauguration is now available -- as our friends over at the Chant Cafe point out, the irony here is that even though liturgically-minded folks have been stirring up a ruckus since Pope Francis was elected, the upcoming inauguration Mass contains about as much chant as a Mass possibly could. There isn't really anything in here that I find objectionable. This probably is due in large part to the presence of Msgr. Marini as Master of Ceremonies and the tremendous work done by Pope Benedict in building a sound liturgical mindset in the Church.
