About this blogger:
Father Charles Garnier, the Apostle to the Hurons and the Petuns, has left a memory of exceptional heroism. In the last moments of the agony that ended in his death, he tried with his waning energies to save the soul of another.

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.

Here are sample pages from the JOGUES MISSAL (approved for liturgical use by the USCCB in 2014). Do you see why we emphasize that the Propers are identical in both forms—Ordinary and Extraordinary?

Many priests don’t realize that the so-called “Novus Ordo” Propers (1974) are often indistinguishable from the “Tridentine” version (1962).
