This week I’m starting a podcast series featuring Roman Catholic liturgical music from the 1960’s and 1970’s. Since the Vatican has been busy outlawing certain forms of the divine name and other reversions to the “traditional” Mass, I’m entitling this series “Mass Confusion.”
The best place to start the Mass is with an Introit (generally known in NOM times as a “Processional.”) This introit will throw traditionalists into a panic as much today as it did in late 1960’s Poland. It is the Introit from the Msza Beatowa, the “Beat Mass” by the Polish club group Czerwono-Czarni. You just have to experience it to believe it.
