    I have a new problem. I am researching Rolande Falcinelli's "Rosa Mystica--Pièce d'orgue sur 7 thémes grégoriens à la Vierge" Opus 20. She puts a recurring tune in the pedal and labels it "Litanies." I looked up the Litany of Loreto, but this does not match that tune. Any ideas from you Roman experts? Thank you, thank you, thank you!
