Jeffrey Tucker of The New Liturgical Movement has an essay in the Fall issue of Sacred Music called "The Mystery of the St. Louis Jesuits." The article is in reaction to the coffee table book put out on the St. Louis Jesuits by OCP earlier this year. The article gives a history of them and how it al involved. There is a lot of interesting information on the genesis of this group and how they evolved. He also relates what he calls " a scene worthy of the movie "Spinal Tap,"
I would love to see a mockumentary in the vein of Spinal Tap and A Mighty Wind done on the St. Louis Jesuits. There is just so much to mock that the script would write itself just by paralleling their true history. There is one quote from Spinal Tap that could be used almost directly in a mockumentary on them In fact if you substitute the words Spinal Tap for St. Louis Jesuits this quote is perfect.
[Reading a review of Spinal Tap’s latest album]
Marty DiBergi: "This pretentious ponderous collection of religious rock psalms is enough to prompt the question, ‘What day did the Lord create
Spinal Tap the St. Louis Jesuits, and couldn’t he have rested on that day too?’"
