Spare thy people, O Lord!

Tipped from the Curt Jester, whose visitors (mostly) feel likewise.

St. Louis Jesuits liturgical music group back together after 21 years

"Morning Light" is the seventh recording for the St. Louis Jesuits -- Dan Schutte and Jesuit Fathers Bob Dufford, John Foley and Roc O'Connor -- who were known for such songs as "Blest Be the Lord," "Lift Up Your Hearts" and "Sing a New Song."

Frankly, I don't have the heart at the moment to mock this. These men helped ruin my childhood with terrible church music, the least they could have done was kept silent.

"It really was a wonderful experience and very nostalgic and heartwarming to record together again," Schutte said in a phone interview with The Catholic Voice, Omaha archdiocesan newspaper. "Beyond the recording, it was just a wonderful experience of spending companionship time together."

How nice for you, Dan. But you could have just kept the tracks on GarageBand in your home computers, all the same. And, you know, released bootlegs for those now late-middle-aged people who thought you were so "hip" and "groovy" back when.
