I just typed nearly the same thing on the Recovering Choir Director's blog.

"Someone on Aristotle's site asked if there were new translations of the Propers, do you know?"

That would be Roman Missal III, already completed, I believe.

Some really lovely stuff. It appears to be very close to the Latin. It also uses some wonderful words not in the lexicon of the MTV crowd (e.g., deign). Frankly, it feels like a higher quality of translation (in many respects) than the latest translations in the Lectionary for the U.S.

It's still a draft, of course, and we'll see what comes out. I trust that all will be well in the end.
