Thankfully, I did not watch all of the Mass, because I had read that pro-abortion members of Congress were going to receive the Holy Eucharist. I cannot say how angry that makes me. I did hear the final selections which seemed beautiful. But when I heard a commentator on Fox News say that the music was a little different, I knew what had happened and it made me even angrier, until it made me happy;)
As has been stated here already, now the Holy Father knows, first hand. Even in this setting, Mass may not become an ecumenical happening. The music is part of the Mass and must be written for that purpose. Period. In my opinion the only “pastoral consideration” that may go into the decision as to what music prayers will be sung is will they contribute to the authenticity and validity and beauty of the Mass." There is so much to say about this, but this is not the time.
Is there a website where one may find a list of those who are masters in traditional litugical music? I would like to find those who would be able to judge new music for a very important competition. Thanks.
