Sacred Music Restoration Attempt: Update
Vox Cantoris offers an analysis of the document published concerning liturgical music renewal which I commented on in a previous post. He offers a more knowledgeable and erudite commentary. We both reach the same conclusion.
There is quite a list of signatories. I find it strange that these people, with this mildly worded document, are attempting to rectify the music situation in the Church that has been in steady decline since Vatican II and shows no signs of reversal no matter who laments the current liturgical music crisis or the means they utilize in their attempts.
It will take a papal decree from the likes of a Pope St. Pius X to force the Church back to its liturgical roots. There doesn’t appear to be anything on the horizon.
