Fr. Uwe Michael Lang, C.O., Consulter to the Office for the Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff and Coordinator of the program for Master Architecture, Sacred Art and Liturgy at the Universita Europea di Roma/Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum, has praised Papal Legislation on Sacred Music: 95 A.D. to 1977 A.D. by Msgr. Robert F. Hayburn, Mus.D., saying that it "contains a wealth of important texts that are otherwise very hard to find and is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in sacred music and the liturgy. The present debate on Church music will no doubt benefit from this outstanding volume, which thanks to the publisher's efforts is again available in print."
Roman Catholic Books brought this classic back into print in 2005. Originally priced at $69.75, the book is now available for $34.87.
Msgr. Hayburn's book, first published over 30 years ago, definitively answers questions about the Church's traditional thinking and its rules on sacred music. At the time of its publication, reviewer Michael Callaghan said in Clergy Review: "To my knowledge no more complete documentation of papal legislation on sacred music exists."
