Here are some opinions I have heard 👂 in all my parishes like All My Children 👶 ":
The organ is too loud
The tempo is too slow
The piano sounds like a piano bar
Chant is boring
Worship and praise is the way to go
It sounds like a Broadway 🎭 melody
It's too Protestant
It's too Pentecostal
It isn't Catholic
I could go on and on.
I have inherited a conundrum in my new parish. Twice a month we have an extra "Lifeteen Mass" on Sunday afternoon with a lifeteen band. The music 🎶 is well done ✅ but completely different was what our parish sings each Sunday. On top of that we take teens away from the Mass they go to as a family. The music is worship and praise. Some of it is vapid. But the band is good and nice to listen earning applause at the end of Mass.
On top of that, out of a potential of about 320 9th through 12th graders, we get about 20 at this Mass with bout 40 people my age (baby boomers) who are trying in a nostalgic way to recapture the folk music mentality of their long gone youth!
So I welcome pope Francis remarks but wonder if his last paragraph just muddies the waters more?
