Quote on music in church

Apologies for my five-month absence, during which I have had very little inspiration to blog.

I enjoyed this quote, read today:

Modern church music is so constructed that the congregation cannot hear one distinct word.... A set of creatures who ought to be lamenting their sins, fancy they can please God by gurgling in their throats.
