I think that you’re always going to have two points of view: those who are adamant about the traditionalism of a high organ and chant mass, as well as those who favor the Haas era of musicality. While I consider myself more traditional in choice, I have a respect for more modern musical selection as I received the sacraments from a suburban church.
As for drums, I don’t disagree that when done properly, it can add to the modern sounds of the OCP hymnals or even praise and worship . I have been to a church where the selections were common radio songs, but the execution of the liturgy was so spot on that the music actually added a lot of meaning to the liturgy. And isn’t that the purpose of hymns in the first place?
Also, defining drums is a broad assumption. Look to the use of Timpani in many solemn masses. They are definitely drums, but are so powerful. For instance, the start of O Come All Ye Faithful with Timpani is just glorious!
Overall, if done correctly, any religious musical selections can be influential to a liturgy. I think that looking at individual aspects of a liturgical celebration is a disservice to the liturgy as a whole. A high organ doesn’t make a mass more spiritual or holy if the priest is lackluster with the presidential prayers or the ep’s. The same is true with the modern music. A good priest with uplifting music will be successful at delivering a moving, spiritual liturgy that represents the mission of the priest: to offer up our needs and desires and sacrifices to God.
