Ah yes the tambourine! Goes especially well with the song "Kumbaya". I can't wait for the hippie crap Mass to die off. The old school Mass definitely rules.

Can we keep the guitars?

BriFili Stating said...

I wonder what the next instrument will be? The drums perhaps? No 'folk' mass is complete without a drum solo.

Our (young) associate pastor said to my wife and I after mass yesterday, "Can we please just get over the 70's?" All I could say was, "Amen!"

Now I guess I'm left with musical spoons.

I like all instruments...and when you think of it, didn't Jesus kinda dress like a hippie? ;-)

I don't care what kind of music is playing, to me, singing in church is just like praying and we all have our own unique way of speaking to the Lord.

I equally love the Gregorian chants, the more "traditional" hymns, and Gospel music just sets my soul on fire! ;-)

What about Cowbell?

Mary Ellen said...

The way some Catholics sing, a cowbell would be appropriate. ;-)

You know those long plastic horns you see at sports events (well, that some people see, I don't attend pro sports events) yes, well maybe those would be good. Sort of a Catholic 70s Shofar thing.

Owen- Ok...that made me really laugh! :-D

I hope you don't mind, but I printed out your picture and have been passing it around as a photograph of our choir director during practice. I sort of meant it as a joke, but everyone seems to think it's real.... Oh well.

John in a secret place so I'm not found out.

The "secret word" is StStrama. Who's St Strama? And I just posted at another blog where the word was "Latin." Maybe I can't hide?
