New consultors for papal liturgy

This announcement today in the Vatican Bollettino:
The Holy Father has nominated as consultors of the Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff: Msgr. Nicola Bux, professor at the Theological Faculty of Puglia, Italy; Fr. Mauro Gagliardi, professor at the Pontifical Athenaeum "Regina Apostolorum", Rome; Fr. Juan Jose Silvestre Valor, professor at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome. Fr. Uwe Michael Lang C.O., official of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, and Fr. Paul C. F. Gunter O.S.B., professor at the St. Anselm Pontifical Athenaeum, Rome.
Mgr Nicola Bux is an expert on the oriental rites and a very sound chap whom I have had the pleasure of meeting once or twice in Rome. He spoke at the launch of the Italian edition of Fr Lang's book "Turning Towards the Lord"; Fr Gagliardi recently gave a three day seminar on the Liturgy at a conference for seminary formators arranged by the Legionaries of Christ; Fr Valor teaches at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, the Opus Dei university in Rome. Fr Lang is a priest of the London Oratory and in addition to "Turning Towards the Lord", has published many of great value concerning the Liturgy. Fr Paul Gunter is one of the members of the editorial board of the forthcoming journal Usus Antiquior.

A pretty solid line-up.
