Well, that's just it, we almost ALWAYS agree on music, we have the same styles. Maybe he picked the one he did because it was easier to sing for the congregation, I know he has done that sometimes....but anyway, it's not going to kill me, I enjoy everything else he sings. He does sing mostly traditional, and I don't MIND some of the 80's ones...I like Canticle of the Sun....."The heavens are telling the glory of God"...I'm using that for St. Francis Day.
Because a lot of people do not normally sing- many directors are selecting music that is more singable than in the past 20 years. Some of the lovely music of glory and praise had high notes that made good singers have to stand out and it is distracting for the singer because we would rather focus on worship. I like plenty of the 80's music.
