World Youth Day Song: Amateurish And Embarrassing

“Há Pressa no Ar” (“There's a rush in the air”) is the title of the theme song for World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon, Portugal, which will likely be cancelled because of the ongoing Covid-19 curfews.

The song (video below) was published on January 27. The lyrics were authored by Father João Paulo Vaz, while the music was composed by the teacher Pedro Ferreira, both from Coimbra Diocese.

The music is boring, superficial, amateurish, and embarrassing. It cannot compete in any way with pop music listened by teenagers, much less with the Church's towering musical tradition.

Si eventually this may lead to Tallis.
Its just that Jesus must get a foot behind the door so you can't …More

Will not get it with Tallis right from the bat.

No offense, but be wary of spiritual beings who claim they are members of the Holy Family.

The same is true for the lyrics with the added insult of panderng to us Catholics with conspicuous references …More

The same is true for the lyrics with the added insult of panderng to us Catholics with conspicuous references to "Mary", etc..Remove them, and this tune is just "non-denominational Christian-pop".

Quotin' the article for truth.... "The music is boring, superficial, amateurish, and embarrassing. It cannot compete in any way with pop music..." -and that's the honest to God truth.
