From his several vantage points as secretary of the preparatory commission on the liturgy (1960 1962), peritus of the Second Vatican Council and its commission on the liturgy, secretary of the Consilium for the Implementation of Constitution on the Liturgy (1964 1969), and secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, Archbishop Annibale Bugnini is in a unique position to tell the complete story of the reform of the Roman liturgy. His careful account of the development of the rites illuminates the meanings and purposes behind the reforms, as well as the compromises that were made for the sake of reform. Fascinating from a purely historical standpoint, The Reform of the Liturgy has a deeper value as an adjunct to catechesis. Although an eminently scholarly work, it deserves the attention of a wider audience. Anyone having anything to do with teaching or preparing the liturgy will benefit greatly from this prodigious work.
