Millenial Accretions in Need of Suppression

A most excellent post from the Recovering Choir Directo, entitled "On needless repetition in the Ordinary Form Mass";

wherein he takes remarks made earlier by the sure-footed "Pes" at the CMAA fora; comments on and footnotes them, and succinctly points out the irony of what was intended to be a liturgical renewal removing medieval accretions and needless repetition, instead becoming liturgical fabrication, acquiring its own layer of barnacles.

Aristotle's blog is fast becoming one of the greatest one-man liturgical resources on the internet. The Church, or at least Church musicians and liturgists in the US, owe him a great debt.
