Fr. Mark Daniel Kirby, OSB is travelling in Italy and filed this report on music at several Masses. He also proposed suggestions for reforms. While he's more of a "strict constructionist" than I in terms of musical style, I think it's definitely worth a read.
And it's worth remembering, in our self-pitying moments, that the malaise of sentimental, pop-themed music is worldwide. (Remember also in your prayers all those working for a cure.)
