Graduum Redux
Oh, a couple of more things about graduum. The current liturgy is ironically more triumphalistic than the old one. Also, the current English translation mutes the sense of graduum even more. All those "beseeches" gone. The Reader's Digest effect on the Gloria. We now say the Our Father "with confidence" instead of "daring" to say it.
