Raven Welgram's Letter

Warning This Section Does Contain Spoilers

Raven Welgram's Letter has some strange wording and the wording is also italicised where the rest of the letter is in regular font. Using The Litany of Many Appellations and The Litany of Many Instruments from the Veridical Codex Umbra to solve. Both The Litany of Many Appellations and The Litany of Many Instruments have 25 lines each. If we assign the letters A-Y to each of the 25 lines like below:
