The music really does matter

Here is a parishioner blogging about how a wonderful music program at her parish was suddenly wrecked by a personnel change. They have gone from Roman Gradual propers to "Gift of Finest Wheat" in a matter of weeks. Now she now dreads Holy Week. What struck me in particular is how the pastor didn't tell anyone that the music director was fired - as if it is no one else's business. Now, I have no details about this parish beyond what this blog reports, and there are a probably a zillion issues here, but the honesty and clarity of her post is truly moving. The music really does matter.

P.S. This appears to be the parish in question, in Lafayette, LA.
