It could be worse. Imagine Cat Stevens singing that blasted pile of insipidity, which would fit...
And as a matter of fact, "PilgrimMusic" was started precisely because NOBODY wants to buy Schutte's crap--most hymnals have only a few of his doodoodrippings remaining.

Based on their website, it appears as if they just took a bunch more of it. Advent and Christmas music a-la-schutte, just what we need.
I don't want to really argue, but there are some people out there who do like and do buy Dan Schuette's material. I haven't quite figured out why, but there are people who do like it.
