  • What do people here think about this? Just like in the Protestant sects, I have noticed that the lay people in the NO make up their own songs now, and sometimes even use them in the New Mess. I don't really know much about music in general, but what I perceive is that these songs usually have this "pop music" or Protestant air to them. I don't know if it's because they're meant to be sung with guitars and other profane instruments, but they just put me off and make me think of Protestantism.

  • They couldn't do very much worse than some of the "professionally" written heretical pop songs they've been using for decades now ("Gather Us In" "Sing a New Church" etc).

  • Interesting that you "noticed" it.

    All songs have to be "made up" at some point.  There was a time that no choir in the Church ever sang Faith of our Fathers or even "The Mass of the Angels".  The songs and the music had not yet been composed.

    But I agree with BTNYC that there is no point in condemning some of the faithful for composing new songs when the "professional" songs they have available to them are so putrid.  In any event, someone with some sort of authority in the parish and/or diocese had to approve the use of these songs.  So, if you object to them, who are you really objecting to?

  • Yep, they could hardly do worse than Carey Landry.  "Giant Love Ball"

  • Certainly individual songs can be criticized for their content, but I do not think they can be criticized merely for being new or because they were written by lay individuals.   All songs were new at some point, and some hymns that are now considered holy and traditional were written by laymen, for example, Adeste Fideles.

  • Having composed a couple of "lay songs" myself in the days of my NO blindness, I can't say that such a composition would be intrinsically wrong. However, the mixture of silly melody and dangerous lyrics usually ends in nothing good.

    I do wonder why the OP calls a guitar a profane instrument.  O Holy Night! was composed on a guitar.

  • Years ago someone made a Marty Haugen Song Lyric Generator. That thing was hilarious. I wonder if it is still out there.

  • SSPX laity wrote a song about Pope Pius X.  I would like to hear it.

  • Marty Haugen isn't even Catholic, which would explain the heretical songs he writes for the Novus Ordo. He's Lutheran, IIRC.
    For Lent, my resolution is to not be on this site, period. We could all do with more of the Sacraments and less screen time.

    God bless you all, and have a fruitful and blessed Lent!

    There are times when I wonder if poche is actually Catholic.  Too much sucking up to the V2 modernists have contaminated his own mind.

    I wonder why he enjoys CI.  I hope there's some deep-seated glimmer of hope for his conversion that is the reason.
