1. Just to be clear about things: there is and never was any such thing as a “Victorian” liturgy.
2. The liturgy of the Catholic Church underwent little change between the publication of the Missale Romanum, of St. Pope Pius V in 1570, and the publication of the revised version of that Missal by Pope Paul VI in 1969.
3. It would also be useful to bear in mind that the Rite of the Mass in both editions of Missale Romanum is and remains substantially the same. There is no radical rupture between the Missal of Pius V and that of Paul VI.
4. Talking of a “Victorian liturgy” is simply ill informed. You could speak of the liturgy as celebrated in the Victorian era i.e. 1837-1901; just as you can speak of the same liturgy being celebrated in the post conciliar period, i.e. 1965-2006.
