The Ephemerists

Can't remember where I picked up the term, some blog probably, but the Ephemerists are the purveyors of the never-meant-to-last "sacred" music that is the plague o Catholic publishing and Catholic liturgical praxis.

Sophie Caldecott has a most interesting piece originally run in Pylot, about clothing and the damage we are doing to ourselves, to so many aspects of society, with the cult of the new.

This mind-set, the insatiable craving for the trendy, no matter how shabby, has been a curse on the Liturgy for most of my lifetime.

Throw-away clothes, throw-away missals... and who can deny that society as a whole has embraced the concept, (no I cannot use that word here,) idea of throw-away people?
