Welcome to Their “Nightmare”

Father Enrique Vázquez’s WYD hymn is a problem for Yago de la Cierva, executive director:

The hymn is my nightmare.

It’s very beautiful for the type of music it is, but maybe we made a mistake (choosing it).

So the organizers are scrambling to cover. Over eighty new songs are available on the WYD web site. What was the problem?

The hymn was written to help people pray before the Eucharist. Maybe that’s not what people wanted — well, obviously, that’s not what people wanted.

Reminds me of a musician’s nightmare from a different decade.
