Volume 9

Volume 9 (2005)

Numbers One, Two, and Three

Transitions in the Society for Catholic Liturgy and in the editorship of Antiphon required the conflation of material from 2003 and 2004 into a single volume, Volume Eight. The current volume, Volume Nine, continues without interruption the numbering of the series. Thus Volume Nine bears the date 2005, rather than 2004, 2004/2005, or any other combination. This decision should cause the least amount of inconvenience to librarians, cataloguers, and private collectors.
