    Has anyone seen or encountered the SATB Latin version of the Mass of the Litanies, by Lucien Duesing, O.S.B.? I am told it was written to be sung alternating between choir and congregation, with the latter's parts based on phrases from the Litany.

    I have found that it was published by McLoughlin and Reilly in 1952, with the SATB version listed for sale in Caecilia throughout the '50s as catalog #1973. WorldCat only offers the 1965 provisional-English adaptation, and the archives of the diocesan seminary only has the male-voices TTBB version; nowhere can I find any information concerning the Latin SATB version. Now that M&R has been swallowed up by Warner/Chappel, it appears to be permanently out of print.

    Thanks for any information anyone can provide.
