Just because something like this might be well-received by particular Catholic congregations, does the logic follow that this is good for the Church and her liturgy? I say emphatically, "NO!" The fallacy of this logic which so many progressive liturgists have embraced is that if people like it and it keeps them in the Church then why not do this.
As well, there is little or no outrage today when these things are done compared to the 1960's and 70's when experimentation of this sort was met with skepticism by a large number of Catholics until they eventually were crock pot cooked in the toxic stew of liturgical nonsensicalness and came to accept whatever was done if it was done for good motives.
So, do you like this and if you do, I'm concerned about your Catholics spirituality and identity, your liturgical awareness and the loss of all that is of our tradition.
(Just as aside, and I know that may seem ironic to some, I actually like the design of this Cathedral and have seen it many, many years ago. I particularly like the sanctuary and the fact that in one sense it is quite traditional. there is a spaciousness in front of the altar and around it and yet the altar and ambo are elevated in the traditional manner of the pre-Vatican II rubrics and the altar does have the "Benedictine Altar Arrangment!"
