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.
