A lot of the favoured new settings are musically illiterate, almost is if they were written by semi-trained teenagers, getting to grips with musical rudiments. The style is stodgy and sentimental, tonally and rhythmically stilted, melodically inane and adored by Catholic clergy “of a certain age.” Some Catholic dioceses run courses for wannabe composers to perpetuate this style. It is a scandal. People with hardly any training and experience of even the basic building blocks of music have been convinced that there is a place for their puerile stumblings and fumblings in the modern Catholic Church because real musicians are elitist and off-putting.

{After the Pater noster—before saying “Libera nos, quaesumus, Domine”—the Celebrant, standing at the Epistle side, faces the Bride and Bridegroom kneeling before the altar, and recites the solemn Nuptial Blessing. This must not be confused with the sacrament of Marriage and cannot be given apart from Mass. This Blessing is not given to a woman contracting a second marriage.}
