In Modernity: Even the Chants are Better



Gregorian Chant - Deum verum

Somebody just tipped me off that there is an entire YouTube channel dedicated to Chanting Music.   The above is one of the most popular videos.




Here is the YouTube Channel description for Callixtus


Yes, but


It is just one further example where ancient is less than modern.


For me, there is no wisdom of the ancients


Even the music was inferior.


Life for the majority was brutal and short.  I don't deny the soulful beauty of the sound   (NB: I'm definitely not recommending the meaning in any of the translations).


But to Marcus:   Modernity wins.
