The Double-Edged Sword

Not sure I should publish this. It could be something of a setback. You see, for lo these many years now those of us on the unrenewed, unaggiornamentoed, maybe even unreconstructed side of the great Vatican II Divide have been contending that the great treasury of the Church's musical heritage, especially Gregorian Chant, would indeed attract the young.

And now my friend Gary sends me this link.

It seems a nuance, a little finesse is in order here. Gregorian Chant attracts, as we meant to say all along, the right sort of youth. Well, naturally the rapscallions and the scalawags are another story altogether.
