Cardinal: Novus Ordo not the Mass of the Council

"Brandmüller: the Mass of Paul VI IS NOT the Mass of the Council -- Sacrosanctum Concilium never really implemented" (Rorate Caeli, August 28, 2012):
... I must emphasise that the form of the post-conciliar liturgy with all its distortions, is not attributable to the Council or to the Liturgy Constitution established during Vatican II which by the way has not really been implemented even to this day. The indiscriminate removal of Latin and Gregorian Chants from liturgical celebrations and the erection of numerous altars were absolutely not acts prescribed by the Council.

Come on, now. At least a call for liturgical dance is assuredly found somewhere in Sacrosanctum Concilium.

It doesn't matter what the Council said. What matters and was we are stuck with is what the reformers actually gave us.
