What Happened to "Church Music"?

Tripped across this wonderful line.....

...My budding interest in philosophy was captivated when I saw a shelf labeled “metaphysics.” Eagerly hoping to find a deep work by some great thinker, I was disappointed to discover that the books were all of the New Age variety. I was expecting being and essence; I instead got crystals and energy flow....
I doubt that Esolen could have written a better epitaph for "church music" since 1963 or so.

(No, I don't want to get into the 'sacred music'/hymnody discussion today.)
