Pope Benedict Brings on a New Liturgical Crew for Papal Masses

I would think this is good news. Masses offered by the Vicar of Christ should be devoid of shenanigans like those we've seen over the last couple of decades. CalCatholic has the new roster:

The list of new consultants also includes Fr. Mauro Gagliardi, an expert in dogmatic theology and professor at the Legionaries of Christ's Pontifical Athenaeum “Regina Apostolorum;” Opus Dei Spanish priest Juan José Silvestre Valor, professor at the Pontifical University of Santa Croce in Rome; Fr. Uwe Michael Lang, C.O., an official of the Congregation for the Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and author of the book Turning Towards the Lord -- about the importance of facing ad orientem during Mass; and Fr. Paul C.F. Gunter, a Benedictine professor at the Pontifical Athenaeum Sant Anselmo in Rome and member of the editorial board of the forthcoming Usus Antiquior, a quarterly journal dedicated to the liturgy under the auspices of the Society of St. Catherine of Siena. The Society, which has an association with the English Province of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), promotes the intellectual and liturgical renewal of the Church.

Have you read that turning towards the Lord book mentioned in the article? I would be curious what all they have to say in there.

I have not. I have two liturgical works on my list right now and might be addding this one to the list. I'm looking to work on Spirit of the Liturgy by Ratzinger and The Reform of the Roman Liturgy by Msgr. Klaus Gamber (with the foreword and endorsement of Ratzinger).
