I have been remiss in send out thanks to readers who have use my amazon wish list to send me items as wondrous as they are going to be time consuming.
In my defense, however, I was away from the Sabine Farm for a while. On my return I found a prodigious great stake of packages.
First, I must say that some books have come, but without any indication of who sent them.
For example, without attribution I received
The Catholic Thing by Rosemary Haughton
and something I am sure I need…
Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies.
also… a newer book
Worship as a Revelation by Laurence Paul Hemming
This last one is an interesting book, though I have some problems with it as I read. Very engaging, however.
Thanks to … whoever you are.
On the other hand, MA of CA sent Temple Themes in Christian Worship by Margaret Baker.
G&AB of NY sent three wonderful books, even gift wrapped!
Lobscouse and Spotted Dog: Which It’s a Gastronomic Companion to the Aubrey/Maturin Novels (of Patrick O’Brian) by anne Chotzinoff-Grossman
This is packed with thoroughly researched and tested recipes from historic cookbooks for food mentioned in O’Brian’s books. Utterly fascinating, and at times enticing or revolting!
Also… A Sea of Words, Third Edition: A Lexicon and Companion to the Complete Seafaring Tales of Patrick O’Brian by Dean King.
If you are going to dig into this series, this would be a handy book to have around.
The Organic Development of the Liturgy: The Principles of Liturgical Reform and Their Relation to the Twentieth Century Liturgical Movement Prior to… etc. by Alcuin Reid.
Many thanks to you who have used the donation button on the left-side bar and also on some posts (such as the present). I am trying to get myself to London for the launch of the new journal Usus Antiquior, which I think will be an important tool of liturgical reform.
As always, I remember those who give donations during Holy Mass, as is fitting for priests to do regarding benefactors.
