The Office For Liturgical Music?

Sandro Magister has a great roundup of Pope Benedict's Curial changes and the changes to be expected.

Magister writes that:
Some of these “reforms of the reform” will concern music. On June 30, the head of the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music, Msgr. Valentino Miserachs Grau, announced that the pope will make a personal visit there in November to inaugurate the new academic year. And he said he expects the creation of a new Vatican office “that would coordinate with authority the activity of all those who work in liturgical music, and would watch over the liturgical celebrations.”

Sounds good to me. Too many liturgical musicians have been wandering around like sheep without a shepherd and others like lions devouring the sheep. It will be good to have a shepherd.

Magister doesn't say anything about Archbishop Marini's future, but I expect he will be replaced soon.
