The standard goop, plus some brand new goop

Attended Mass at my parish church yesterday.  The customary, atrocious hymns and settings were duly performed.  However, during Communion, a visiting musician/songwriter broke up the monotony by performing an entirely new (and very long) atrocious song.  Naturally, after Communion the priest rubbed salt in the wound by requesting that we applaud the visiting musician/songwriter.  Naturally, (practically) everybody did.  

Fr Z has said we need "a Mass for grownups."  Boy, do we ever.  However, by putting it this way, we slight children, who are as capable as grownups of telling the difference between pearls and rubbish.  Perhaps it would by better to say that we need a Mass which is holy and beautiful.
