Spirit of Solesmes, The


This book contains a selection from the writings, sermons and personal correspondence of Dom Guéranger, his successor, Dom Paul Delatte, and Abbess Cécile Bruyère who founded the Abbey of St. Cecilia near the monastery at Solesmes. These three are the leading lights of the 19th Century Benedictine revival in France. The readings reveal the deep spiritual forces at work in these souls who educed such profound co-operation from men and women of the Church and the nation during a time of intense spiritual and political turmoil. A good companion reader to The Liturgical Year.
