These documents, authored by the same Congregation, uphold the Second Vatican Council’s teachings and explain how to integrate them into the Church’s liturgies. With these essential writings, discover how the Catholic Church brings Vatican II to the Mass and honors the Sacraments with instructions for every diocese around the globe.

"In some parts of the world, especially mission lands, there are people who have their own musical traditions, and these play a great part in their religious and social life. Due importance is to be attached to their music and a suitable place given to it, not only in forming their attitude toward religion, but also in adapting worship to their native genius.” [Varietates Legitimae, 40/Sacrosanctum Concilium, 119]
