The Mass that should have been
The 1965 Missal. Makes an interesting side-by-side read with the 1549 Book of Common Prayer's Mass and would be a great choice for the default RC book today. All that's lacking are artistic, classic English translations - those used in the BCP, the English Missal*, the Authorized Version (King James Bible) and Miles Coverdale's translation of the Roman Canon (perhaps irrelevant with a silent Canon but good in case one uses an option to do it aloud).

*From a vagante site not approved by this blog but useful to show this missal.
