Papal Legislation On Sacred Music by Robert F. Hayburn (organist, teacher, composer, parish priest, music historian, and former director of muse to the archdiocese of San Francisco and faculty member of the Catholic University of America) is a 619-page compendium covering ecclesiastical influences on the music of the Roman Catholic church from 95 A.D. to 1977 A.D. Superbly organized and a work of impeccable scholarship, Papal Legislation On Sacred Music begins with chapters on the earlier Popes, John XXII and "Docta Sanctorum Patrum", the Council of Trent, and the Medicean Edition of the Chant Books, to church and religious music of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, the Ratisbon and Solesmes editions of the Chant Books, the reforms of Pius X, the Vatican Edition of the Chant Books, the "Motu Proprio" of November 22, 1903, and the final chapter "Conclusions". Enhanced with seven appendices, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive index, Papal Legislation On Sacred Music is a core addition to church, seminary, and academic library Music History reference collections.
