LaRouche is against Modern Music and these ritualistic LYM Choirs are part of his Mind Control techique.
LaRouche Youth Movement Brings Bel Canto Singing to the Streets, 2007 from http://www.schillerinstitute.org/music/revolution.html
"You see this on the streets: We have youth go out in the streets will sing the Jesu, meineFreude , or segments of it, especially the "Trotz" section of that. This has an effect upon the people: They suddenly stop being stupid and corrupt, and they come up and start discussing things seriously. " * Lyndon LaRouche on Stockwell Show
