Sacred Music Restoration Attempt

Another attempt has been made to restore the sacred to liturgical music. Though there have been numerous attempts over the years since Vatican II (and the subsequent decimation of liturgical music) to restore sacred music to its proper elevated status in the liturgical worship of the Church, those efforts have only, for the most part, been realized in traditional parishes that embrace pre-Vatican II liturgical guidelines which include Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony as standard for liturgical music. The vast majority of parishes adhere to the self-indulgent, performance minded repertoire rife with guitars, the occasional drum set and all the pervasive OCP musical fodder.

Though well-intentioned, this is just another feeble effort at correcting the liturgical malaise rampant in many Catholic Churches today; obvious to traditional Catholics but woefully oblivious to most mainstream Catholics.

And quoting the current pontiff in an article on sacred music is akin to quoting him in an article extolling the virtues of and promoting traditional religious order (ie., the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate).
