Holy Cow! Did you see that flying pig go by?

Ht New Liturgical Movement

The CBC did a report on the Gregorian Chant colloquium in Halifax, and it was not a hatchet job.  Never thought I would see that.

I can't embed, but here's the link.

They were positive on the music, but they did not mention its place in religion or religious ceremonies.  In fact, they call it the 'sounds of a bygone era', as though they were reporting on an autopsy.  That could be why they were so positive.

That pig is suddenly looking more mundane.

That is sad and it perpetuates chant as something exotic. When I was a teen I thought chant was something done in monasteries. (when I was a teen I also bought chant records (before it was popular) and burnt frankincense while listening to it)
But at the time; I never connected chant to a normal Mass.

We heard nothing about this event in Quebec. Alas, no surprises there.
