Don't Get Mad; Get Propers

Unlike some people, I'm not offended at all when people like this rage against the machine. What passes for Catholic music these days does indeed seem contrary to what informed Catholics sense should be happening at Mass. But the solution is not just another hymnal. It is to sing the liturgy as it is given to us, and stop replacing the propers with hymns of any sort.
