...horrid, horrid....NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! not Marty Haugen....Holy, Holy, Holy
After that horrible psalm then the dreadful offertory salsa music, which Raymond Arroyo called, "Amazon flavor"...then the awful Veni creator with Indian flute to be crowned by Haugen.
Update...yikes with the Christ has died....and then the fanfare with the Great Amen. Horrid, horrid.
So far, they have managed to mangle the Gregorian chants. The Gloria, then Veni, now Ubi...then this communion dreadful meandering stuff....who wrote this? I haven't looked at the Mass companion booklet.
Oh, and furthermore, this style of music really is ugly for the human voice. Did you hear how the quality of singing degenerated?
Oh, no, now electronic piano. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Nooooooooo, clapping at Holy Communion. THIS.IS.JUST.DREADFUL. HOW.TOTALLY.EMBARRASSING!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Holy Father is now sitting during Communion...his head is bowed. Please forgive us, Holy Father.
What is this dreadful setting of Pange lingua gloriosi? How hard would it have been for the choir to have learned the chant? No, we have to turn this into an operetta type duet.
Oh, caterwauling now...yes, my new mantra...overweening display of mult-culturalism.
Panis angelicus....stop.the.clapping...Mr. Domingo would prefer you to meditate. Good grief!
Papa...let us pray...
Update...the Mass is ended.
Do you know what is tragic about this mess of music? Those of us working in the parish level who are working hard to bring music back into line will now have another hill to climb. Guess what we'll hear? "Well, if it's good enough for a Papal Mass, it's good enough here."
