Why Catholics can't sing : the culture of Catholicism and the triumph of bad taste by Thomas Day( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 645 libraries worldwide
"Day, head of the music department at Salve Regina College in Rhode Island, accurately and wittily skewers what passes for culture in American Catholicism, particularly as expressed in church music. He takes aim at the "Irish-American" repertoire of songs that comprise Catholic music in this country, and assails other less felicitous liturgical practices in vogue since Vatican II, such as applauding during Mass. "Liturgical post-modernism," according to Day, has resulted in noisy and forced participation from the laity, and encourages a church-wide narcissism that is a serious threat to individuals as well as the institution. No mere nay-sayer, Day makes positive suggestions for nurturing the latent vitality he perceives in the American Catholic community. This is an informative, insightful and entertaining critique."--Publishers Weekly
Where have you gone, Michelangelo? : the loss of soul in Catholic culture by Thomas Day( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"Since Vatican II, many a Catholic worshiper has wondered, "What in heaven's name is going on?" Although it has been 30 years since such rumblings began, the cumulative effect on the rubrics has dislodged and depressed as many as have been encouraged and stimulated. Thomas Day laments the loss of soul in the music and style of Catholic services, and the changes in church interiors, as well. Indiscriminate abolishment of spoken and musical Latin has created a trend of turgid, unknown hymns that the community seldom welcomes. Costly and often unnecessary changes in church interiors--such as slanting pews and the replacement of baptistries with large pools--are just some of the cultural shocks that have been promulgated. Day believes that ethnic chauvinism--whether African American or Irish or Polish--should not wipe out the culture of centuries. Changes have affected not only doctrine but the beauty of worship itself. Day's book is an eloquent plea for that art and soul necessary to sustain beauty."--Eugene Sullivan "Booklist."
