An article from Adoramus called What’s so Sacred about Sacred Music?
Today at Mass for the most part the music selected was truly sacred music and the singing and accompaniment by organ was professionally done. The only exception was that they sang “Shine, Jesus, Shine”, and even though it was done in four part harmony, artistic performance could not overcome the songs “show tune” like qualities. I ponder what Jesus might say in reaction to the “Shine, Jesus, Shine” chorus of this song. Perhaps it might be “I will wash your feet but your shoes you must shine yourself.”
This is truly a first–twice in the same day I agree with you! 🙂
Yes, contemporary liturgical music stinks. Combined with liturgical dancers, it’s like watching a musical–rather than a Divine Liturgy!
