HEUREKA!

I have found a grave error in a preconciliar liturgical book!

My Altar Missal is Dessain 1950. It must be late 1950, because for August 15 it gives the Mass Signum magnum. I had to paste Gaudeamus into it.

But, infra Octavam, it gives for the prayers of commemoration of the Octave our old friends Famulorum etc..

Pius XII's tinkering robbed us of Byrd's beautiful gradualia for this feast.
