I have heard of these techno Masses, and here’s a question for you. What would be wrong with a techno-Gothic Mass? You put up big screens up front and before Mass you have slide shows of great Catholic art fading in and out. You’ve got Gregorian chant playing in the background. The Church is in darkness and silence. Then a lone server comes out of the darkness and lights the candles–lots of them. The images fade. The live music begins. A lone voice singing the entrance antiphon in Gregorian chant. Then the lights come up and the procession begins. The people are singing a traditional hymn quietly and reverently. The altar servers–all boys–are solemn and perfectly trained. The homilist makes use of the wide screens for visual aids if he wants to, then they fade out. The movement of the Mass goes to the altar for the sacrifice of the Mass. The sacred vessels are beautiful old vessels finely made and beautiful. Once again, the music is solemn Gregorian chant–maybe Taize chants with instruments.
Would this be bad? If so why? Would it be good? If so why?
