The Push for the Missal Chants

Every Catholic who cares about upgrading music in parish life should be happy about this article that appears in Pastoral Liturgy. It has some funny understatements ("Chants have been a part of our Catholic faith for centuries") but it is really very good on the essentials. See "Learning the Chants: Singing with a Unified Voice" by Fr. John Mark Klaus.

We might be working toward a national singing voice at long last. Next step: a universal one.
