GUEST,mgarvey@pacifier.com How deep do you go musically? (55* d) RE: How deep do you go musically? 14 Feb 02


Those singer songwriter types got into the Catholic church in the mid sixties and destroyed thousands of years of music (in my opinion..) There were beautiful hymns that we used to sing...that we all knew...and they started having these "folk" masses with music written by Jesuit seminarians as far as I can tell, with good intentions but absolutely no sense of music. I mean, it has been absolutely awful almost everywhere I have been. The music is nothing like folk music, or even music. It doesn't rhyme, it has odd times, like 3/2 going into 5/6 and back to 11/13 all in the same song....I doubt that any parishioner not in the "choir" has ever memorized any of these "songs." And some old hymns are creeping back in..but you are far more likely to see a Protestant hymn...IN THE HYMNBOOK..than a Catholic one. Riddle me this. mg
