In solidarity with NLM, I repost their entry:
Just a reminder that there are vast numbers of chant settings of the new ICEL texts sitting right here for free download but ICEL [!] will not permit you to download them. So you can’t practice them, comment on them so as to improve them, use them to build support for the new texts, or otherwise see what is coming.
How stupid is that?
First, let’s restrict sacred texts.
Then let’s hobble those who must ready themselves for a new translation.
You would think ICEL was a pharmaceutical company protecting their newest ED formula.
What are they afraid of?
