An Interesting Perspective On Chant

On Chant Cafe, Adam Wood likes chant for all the wrong reasons, such as:
People say that we shouldn't sing chant because people need familiar music at Mass.
And too many chant-supporters agree that chant is unfamiliar, but say this is a good thing, that people don't need Mass to be "comfortable."
I disagree.
I think that the constant changing of musical styles to fit the trends is a constant source of unfamiliarity and discomfort, and that a stable repertoire of chants would provide the comfort and familiarity that all people long for.
