After all, the ICEL will not allow anyone to have access to a true musical setting to the new translation of Holy Mass in the Ordinary Form until the major publishers have released their version.
Until said decree from the ICEL, the folks at Musica Sacra had some really good settings of the new translation of Holy Mass posted on their web page. As a result of said decree, the .pdf's AND .mp3's of said music have both been removed (a la the 403 "forbidden" error message, as opposed to the 404 "file not found error message).
So, of course, we now have to wait for settings by Marty Haugen a la Massive Cremation (or if you're in the UK, that's Paul Inwood a la Alleluia Chee-Chee, pictured at left), the to get first dibs on the Mass before any settings true to the Church's teachings can surface.
Jeffrey Tucker and Damian Thompson have excellent takes on this matter.
