You might want to look at Joseph A Jungmann's classic study, _The Mass
of the Roman Rite: Its Origins and Development_. The revised one-volume
edition published by Benzinger Brothers around 1959-61 is handiest. The
first 125 pages or so constitute a history of the mass through the ages;
the remainder analyses the nature, forms and ceremonies of the mass. It
is written from a Latin Catholic perspective, but is often highly
critical of the accretions that encrusted the Lord's supper over the
centuries, especially during the Tridentine period. The book was
influential in the revisions of the liturgy undertaken as a result of
the second Vatican Council in the mid 1960s.
