I wonder what plainsong afficionados would say to Father Pablo Corino’s comment on the pope’s new album:
(Chant) melodies have been developed and harmonized with the orchestra to give a more cultured, more interesting harmony.
Were the original chants not suitable? One review is here. They weren’t impressed with the …
… (P)seudo-spiritual soup of intoned prayer, bastardised Gregorian chant, syrupy orchestral arrangements and portentous vocalising.
What do you think the reaction from reform2 will be?
