Sacred Music vs. “Praise & Worship” – Does it Matter?

The fundamental problem with Praise & Worship 

https://onepeterfive.com/sacred-music-vs...matter-pt/

https://onepeterfive.com/sacred-music-vs...ter-pt-ii/

Both articles talk about music for liturgical use.   My arguments before referred exlusively to non-liturgical music.

To draw this out a little bit, how about a little "praise and worship" set to hip hop gangsta rap, or heavy metal?

Would that be keeping in the Catholic spirit since Christ spilled His Blood, and there is now no profanity?

If someone is adamant about playing guitars and singing songs in his spare time, would it be better if he sang "Highway to Hell" than "Oh Lord Jesus, have mercy on us?"

The secular should not enter into the sacred (no guitars at mass!), but it is not neccesarily bad if the sacred spiritualises the secular.

The content of secular music is largely garbage these days. I don't mind secular music being about life and such, as long as the content isn't evil. There have been lots of great songs written in the past decades on secular topics.

I think the big issue with Christian music today is that Catholics by and large don't write much of it or if they do it sounds no different than the bland Protestant stuff. No real theology and they're boring mushy songs. Find me some rock band that sings seriously about Our Lord's Sacred Heart or a meditation on His Precious Blood or on the Immaculate Conception and I'll listen. I don't want some happy clappy songs about "ohhh God loves youuuu!"

Certainly we don't have any great composers writing new Mass settings or Gregorian chants. Then again, the Novus Ordo doesn't lend itself to those things. Heck, even Christmas songs have been boring for decades. When was the last time you heard a new top notch religious Christmas song? and please don't say "Mary Did You Know?" (horrible song and that was written way back in 1984 anyway).
Blood of Christ, relief of the burdened, save us.

Church Militant has an entertaining video about that.

"Mary, did you know? Well, yeah, she did! The angel already told her!"

Anything remotely protestant is evil and full of heresy so it's best to avoid it
