Using the shoddiest, sleaziest material we have for the purpose of glorifying God is not very sound theology or even very good common sense. […] (In general, when you see a diminished seventh chord in a hymn, run.) And these chords are usually used in bad hymns in precisely the same order in which they occur in “Sweet Adeline.”
— Paul Hume (1956)

Simple English Propers (Divine Mercy Sunday)
published 1 April 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

HAT WOULD THE Simple English Propers sound like harmonized as if they were Chabanel Psalms? In other words, done according to the “Flor Peeters” method of chant accompaniment? Readers will recall that Flor Peeters and his associates at the Lemmens Institute in Belgium (Msgr. Jules Van Nuffel, Msgr. Jules Vyverman, Marinus de Jong, Gustaaf Nees, Henri Durieux, and Edgard de Laet) were the world’s leaders in creating beautiful, modal, Gregorian accompaniments.
