A USCCB directory of liturgical music

Blogger Argent notes that a USCCBureaucracy committee is working on creating a list of liturgical music appropriate for the Mass. While the theological concerns that will act as the guidelines for the project look pretty good and any subsequent directory will be run by the Congregation for Divine Worship in Rome, I’m a little concerned at anything that smacks of official approval coming from DC. What if the project gets highjacked and all the Haugen/Haas/Schutte stuff gets a sort of “imprimatur”? Can you imagine how hard it will be to pry those hymns out of the hands of music ministers all over the country?

“But, it has the approval of the bishops’ conference!”
