Adrian Fortescue, wrote, the traditional Latin Mass is "the most venerable in all Christendom, with a history of unbroken use far longer than that of any Eastern rite, there being no doubt that the essential parts of the Mass are of Apostolic origin"..and which “From roughly the time of St. Gregory [d. 604] we have the text of the Mass, its order and arrangement, as a sacred tradition that no one has ventured to touch it except in unimportant details,” (The Mass, A Study of the Roman Liturgy, London, 1912).  

This is quite laughable.  The liturgies of St. Basil and St. John Chrysostom come from the mid to late 4th century.  If the earliest texts of the Latin mass are from the early 7th century, then it is presumably older than that, but probably not 300 years older.  Sorry Fortescue, ya wrong.

No, no.  Fortescue, a great Byzantine scholar, did not say the earliest texts of the Latin mass were from the early 7th century (which would be nothing to boast about), but rather they were codified in a finalized form as it were during the time of St. Gregory the Great, as up until then there were additional prayers being incorporated.
