The Essential Book Suggestion: "The Liturgical Year"

Since we are beginning the new Liturgical Year this Sunday, remember: Dom Prosper Guéranger's massive work on the Liturgical Year (L'Année liturgique), written mostly by him from 1841 until his death and completed by a Solesmes disciple under his name, is completely available in English on the web. You may also find the individual volumes here in separate PDF files. If you have never heard of it, or never had the opportunity of leafing through its pages, today is the best day of the year to begin!

By the way, for those who might prefer it, and to check cross-references, the original French version is also available on the web, in several versions including the one provided by the Swiss Abbey of Saint-Benoît de Port-Valais.
