New Society

  /   Wednesday April 14, 2004  

I have officially joined the Society for a Moratorium on the Music of Marty Haugen and David Haas. The link comes courtesy of Jeff Miller who provided it courtesy of Fr. Bryce Sibley. If you want to know what garbage is being foisted on us, this post on Spiritual Pyromania sums it up pretty well.

In my parish, the music ministers had the audacity to replace the Memorial Acclamation (after the Consecration) with the chorus from We Remember. Excuse me, but where in the Roman Missal is that? Stick to the book!!

We occasionally have to put up with the self-congratulatory Gather Us In. The sappy We Remember sometimes also comes up, but it isn’t that bad compared to other songs of his (but it still doesn’t belong at the Memorial Acclamation). As many others have said, I am also in favor of banning City of God and They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love, and especially the heretical Ashes (which is such an awful song that even removing the heresy wouldn’t save it). I have never had the misfortune of being forced to sing songs about “Dogmas that obscure your plan,” but they really need to be banned.
