An update on the 1871 Graduale:
I sent the book out yesterday for scanning. Jeffrey and the CMAA are going to pay for the scanning and surprisingly the rebinding as well. I sent him an email asking what would happen once it was scanned and he offered to have it rebound for me. That means the book will last a lot longer and will be even stronger.
In return I am going to be putting a donation to the CMAA and getting a subscription to the Sacred Music Magazine.
Once the Graduale is up for viewing in PDF format I'll let my humble readership know.
