Society for a Moratorium on the Music of Marty Haugen and David Haas

Found at Society for a Moratorium on the Music of Marty Haugen and David Haas:

“No matter where you go to Mass on Sunday in the United States, it’s difficult to escape the music of Marty Haugen and David Haas. I for one am sick and tired of hearing their banal ditties everywhere, and in desperation I have founded this Society for a Moratorium on the Music of Marty Haugen and David Haas, or SMMMHDH for short. The Society is awaiting pontifical approval from the Holy See as a pious sodality. 🙂

Thomas G. McFaul, in his essay on The Sad State of Liturgical Music, laments, ‘What a shame for a young person to grow up thinking that Marty Haugen is the traditional music of the Catholic church!’ The Catholic Church has a rich patrimony of sacred music, but it is a closed book to most of today’s Catholics. “
