Catholic Faux Folk Music - Why won't it go away?

"Monks in Choir"
I'll bet this was prayerful

Sr. Joan L. Roccasalvo, C.S.J., who holds a doctorate in musicology, in addition to degrees in philosophy (Ph.L), theology (M.A.), and the dreaded liturgical studies (Ph.D), provides her highly educated views on the marked decline in quality of Catholic liturgical music here

Best part is this quotation from Franz Josef van Beeck, S.J.:

The single most dangerous threat to the new liturgy is prayerlessness (whether of the authorized or the experimental variety). This is not a theoretical observation but a practical one.  Prayerlessness in the liturgy, in fact, is so widespread as to be almost taken for granted.

True dat.
