Did "the Protestant movement... secularizing [of] musical forms" evolve into the liturgical music of the post-Vatican II era of "the so-called 'Devil's Interval' or tritone" which Pope Paul VI rejected for the Vatican Masses, but apparently allowed for Masses outside the Vatican?

Here is some research on this question:

- At the same time, the nineteenth century saw the final break of the dogmatic hold which had been squeezing scholarship to death for some four hundred years. The Catholic hold on art, morality, ethics and the humanities crumbled under the assault of Charles Darwin, as, indeed, did other Christian doctrines. The restricted content and context for music had already been breaking down; the Protestant movement began the process of secularizing musical forms; new trends in rhythm and harmony were allowed into some liturgies, and even the so-called "Devil's Interval" or tritone (e.g., F-E) began to appear in liturgical music. []

- Despite such varied and blossoming creative activity in the development of Catholic sacred jazz, unleashed by the Church itself as a result of its own Vatican II reforms, the newly elected Pope Paul VI would declare in 1967 that ''jazz Masses violate the norms for sacred music.'' By “norms,” of course, the Pope was referring to fifteenth century polyphony and Gregorian chant. Around the same time, Cardinal James Francis McIntyre (1886-1979) of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, pronounced jazz as ''profane,'' while the spokesman for the Archdiocese of New York, John Michael Caprio, would state that the Catholic Church ''permits many musical forms, provided they are not used for entertainment, are appropriate in style and text, are dignified and complement the prayer.''100 These varied responses by clergy to the new currents in Catholic music illustrate the fact that decisions about the appropriateness of various kinds of sacred music in the post-Vatican II Church were set by regional and local religious authorities according to their needs. If the Pope did not want jazz Masses sung in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, for example, that did not preclude jazz Masses from being sung in St. Patrick Cathedral in New York, or St. Paul Cathedral in Pittsburgh, where Williams’ first jazz Mass was sung. []

Jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New OrleansLouisiana, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with its roots in blues and ragtime []

- Robert Johnson, the first man to play blues. He first picked up a guitar, and tried to play, but he was not very good. He wanted to be great, he wanted overnight success. So one night a figure appeared in front of him, and instructed him to go to a crossroad, to sell his soul. He went to the crossroad, and the devil appeared, tuned his guitar, played a few songs, then handed it back to him. The next day Johnson could play guitar better than anyone, and had an amazing blues voice, both of which take years of practice were attained overnight... Strange.

Robert Johnson even has songs named "Crossroads" "Me and the Devil Blues" and "Hell hound on my trail." It seems like he was quite open about it, he even told friends that he had sold his soul. But the hellhound caught up to Robert, and ended his life. He died at 27, of mysterious circumstances.

Perhaps the most mysterious prospect of the story, is that Robert Johnson could write such good music, with no knowledge of music. If you cant play guitar, and pick one up and try to write a song, youll soon discover its very difficult to create a good sounding tune. Writing music requires knowledge of Guitar scales, music theory, and more. Robert Johnson was a poor, uneducated black man, how he could create such musical masterpieces is a mystery.

After Johnson's music released to the public, it influenced many musicians, and started the delta blues movement. His music was so amazing that it created a genre itself. So The Devils music spread more and more and more.

Rock n Roll then emerged, heavily blues based.

So in essence, many musical genres have satanic origin, but nothing gets as deep and raw as the original, Robert Johnson's music.

If you still doubt this theory, read this:

There is a musical phenomenon known as the "Satanic Scale." It is a guitar scale that is extremely complex and difficult to understand, I cant even start to explain it. It is known as the C Lydian, or Harmonic Minor scale. The scale produces a very eerie, almost evil sound. The scale was banned from all churches, if someone wrote a song using it, they were excommunicated from the church. Priests and high religious officials commented that the scale provoked sexual and evil feelings in people when played.

The funny thing about the scale is that it started with BLUES. The Satanic scale is in fact a blues scale, used by Robert Johnson, and even Led Zeppelin (whom you might have heard is very satanic.) []

-There is something called a Devil’s Interval. It’s a type of chord that was made suppressed and actually made illegal by the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages in very Christian parts of Europe. It had something to do with the chord’s unorthodox structure and its “demonic” sound. []

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

"If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?":

- "Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?":

 -  LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
