Talk About a Clash of Culture

Here's a German group that sing "contemporary" songs in Gregorian Style.

This is Lennon's "Imagine..."  I selected it because I think the clash most profound!

What does this have to say about style and substance?  Could there be a more profound example of the clash?  Here hooded "monks" sing a song about the virtue of "no heaven" "no afterlife" "no god." 

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
