No, I think it is totally within the gregorian chant community. It only makes sense that the first place to look for the instigator would be the 70 other communities in the competition.

I knew there was some resistance in the lite-rock community to the resurgence of chant and truly prayerful music, but this is truly macabre.

How bizarre. What could possibly motivate any person to do such a thing?

Probably from some post-Vatican II guitar players.
