There is a revival of Gregorian Chant that goes along with the traditional Latin Mass crowd and some musicologists. How much can be introduced into the modern mass is questionable, given how much people have gotten used to the folk stuff.
Chicken! it’s good to see you!
I think it’s less a matter of what the congregation has gotten used to and more a matter of what those in charge of liturgy and music are willing to do (with some rare exception).
OTOH, you’re probably right in that chant given “pride of place” probably won’t happen quickly. Locally, we had quite a discussion about chant and other music with some saying that even the missae(?) of Mozart etc. should be subordinate to chant. I think there would be resistance to that. And yes, there’s a contingent that would resist anything other than what’s in Gather.
I usually skip the threads on music because I don’t fall into any camp and will sing almost anything. I put this post up partially because the EWTN program (probably in their archives) came on the heels of the local discussion and partially because I do like chant and have (unsuccessfully) suggested it at various times.
