Pope to purge the Vatican of modern music

November 26, 2007 § 1 Comment

Well, well.  Looks like the Pope is about to take a stance against modern sacred music.  Seems he’s more interested in baroque music and Gregorian chant.  I wonder if this will affect the church musicians performing in catholic churches in the U.S.  Time to whip out some Monteverdi.

§ One Response to Pope to purge the Vatican of modern music

  • Ruth says:

    this is such an interesting article! since music principally was used for purely political reasons in the church (uniting the roman nation through liturgy, mary, correct me on this if i am wrong) i think it is EXTREMELY INTRIGUING that the pope is using the choir as a metaphor for people “out-shouting” each other in the church. wow.
