The CMAA journal vs. the NaPalM journal

And a big difference it is! The Recovering Choir Director has the goods.

I'll give you one example: Check out 1981 and you will see how one set of issues (SM) focuses on Gregorian Chant and other forms of sacred music, while another set of issues (PM) focuses on stuff like "What should we call ourselves?" The introduction of the "music minister" or the "minister of music". One publication was (and still is) promoting the sacred music of the Church, while the other was promoting themselves.

A 2003 issue of Pastoral Music mentions "From Holy God to Awesome God". I just finished skimming through it. The articles in this issue seem to promote the daylights out of the Awesome God side of things. I think I'm going to pay a call to my friend. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAALPH!
