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.

OVERVIEW • Jogues Illuminated Missal
published 23 April 2014 by Corpus Christi Watershed

298 Jogues EMBERS of Corpus Christi Watershed were honored to assist the JP2 Institute in creating a book fulfilling “the true liturgical vision of the Vatican II fathers.” The official title is SAINT ISAAC JOGUES ILLUMINATED MISSAL, LECTIONARY, & GRADUAL, but it’s usually referred to as “The Jogues Missal.”

This book is intended for the pews wherever Ordinary Form Masses are offered. By clicking on the “SUPPORTING MATERIALS” button (see above), you can view sample pages, read reviews, and learn about the various elements that make this book’s 832 pages so unique. Once you’re there, one item not to be missed is the “Home Video” demonstrating how to open the book the first time.
