Food for Thought: Sacred Music

I read this interesting article:   I Don’t Like The Song In My Head… But I Might Need It
Historically, it is interesting to see that simplicity is common.  Kyrie pieces had the same two phrases over and over, often with complex musical setting.  Psalm Chant from the synagogue/monastic tradition same tune phrase over and over, often to accomodate a complex psalm.
