random thoughts on Gregorian Chant

I had it put to me the other day, "Gregorian Chant is young music - it is music of the Church's youth." Wow! *speechless*

I told a bunch of people the other day,"We walk the way of the Church fathers when we sing Gregorian Chant". This thought came to me after I attended, ironically, an Eastern liturgy. That's because these liturgies are ancient, and even though they may be in the vernacular today, they retain much of their liturgical traditions. They have something to teach us Latins on that.

maybe by referrin git as 'young music' they meant its the younger Catholics who are more interested in it reviving it.

Our parish just started a sacred musci choir with the age range being from 25-35. Of course the blue haired liberal old fogies who love Gather Us In are up in arms.
