I think that perhaps the traditional Latin Mass isn’t the spur that will rid Catholic church music of the four-hymn sandwich. While I sympathize with Jeffrey Tucker somewhat, it didn’t take too much surfing today to find the ugly beast rear its head in the 1962 Missal.
Maybe the real solution would be to phase out the Low Mass, and permit only the Tridentine High Mass to be celebrated. I can tell you there is no inspiration to be found in the pedestrian celebration of liturgy in any form. No music? No artistry? I’m sure it can be prayer for people who prefer crumbs and scraps of the liturgical tradition in an unintelligible language. But it’s not going to be the source of any grand merging of the masses with some rosy-colored notion of Cahtolic tradition.
