Hugh Henry stars on NLM...and triggers controversy!

Hugh Henry got a guernsey on the New Liturgical Movement blog a few days ago, with a chant setting of grace before meals:

Apparently though, it has stirred up a huge debate on the merits or otherwise of singing (as opposed to just saying) grace! As the NLM comments:

"It sometimes seems that everything becomes a controversy on the web, and thus has it become with what I thought was an uncontroversial posting of a nice sung prayer before meals. But, sure enough, someone takes issue: "I'm sorry, but 99% of Catholics would consider that the act of a pretentious twit, and rightly so."
