I got this by e-mail:
I always enjoy your blog.
If you have not heard, our friend Tom Stehle, architect of the musical atrocities of the Papal Mass at National’s Stadium, was hired as Director of Music at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Washington D.C.
After the former music director got sick of the politics of Archbishop Wuerl and company and decided to take up teaching, the people at the Cathedral decided that a nation-wide search for the Cathedral Music Director in the See of the Capital City of the United States would be unnecessary when you have someone so preeminently qualified as this. So, the position was never posted, the parish council of the Cathedral was never consulted. The choir was never consulted. The former director was never consulted.
Let’s pray for the poor people of the Archdiocese of Washington, and, in particular, the poor people of St. Matthew’s Cathedral.
