About this blogger:
In the lasting inner turmoil of his years in the mission country, in the loathing and revulsion of spirit, in the mental torment of life with the Indians, St. Noël Chabanel underwent a supremely protracted and excruciating martyrdom. Every day was an agony for his sensibilities. He was the youngest and the last of the eight Jesuit martyrs of North America to die (on 8 December 1649).

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.
