If this three-year-old can sing plainchant, your choir can too.

(Hat tip to her dad, Ian Rutherford.)

Msgr. Valentin Grau, the director of the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music (an educational institute founded at the direction of Pope St. Pius X) offers some refreshingly plain-spoken criticisms and suggestions regarding the state of Church music:

in none of the areas touched on by Vatican II -- and practically all are included -- have there been greater deviations than in sacred music.

If Pope Benedict takes up Msgr. Grau's suggestion for an authoritative pontifical office to regulate sacred music, it might be one of the most influential acts of his pontificate.

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
