    "...definitive form..."
    50 years on, I chuckle hollowly.

    I really don't look for anything until 2025, which is when the new translation of the NAB is supposed to come out.
  • They hymns are supposed to come out sooner and from what I hear everything is ready to go so why the delay???? I can only imagine about 10 different scenarios.

    why the delay????

    Mine own uneducated guess is because of CoVID, supply-chain problems, inflation, & other Technical Difficulties.

  • Salieri,

    I think those will be blamed, but that only explains the last 2 years of delays.

    This is not entirely true—the texts are ready, but the musical settings are still being edited and adapted. They were supposed to be done already, but various delays have caused them to become available more slowly than expected.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we still see the final hymnal published this year.
