Music in Worship: The Use of Music in the Church Service

Excerpt

This book had its origin in a course on the history, theory, and practice of church music which I conducted at Brown University during the period of my service on its faculty.

The present volume is devoted to consideration of the principles and practice of church music. In it I have aimed to set forth the essential function of church music and to present certain means of attaining it. In general, Part One has to do with the principles of church music, Part Two with the application of these.

As the musical conditions of the practice of church music are so diverse and the methods of its use so varied, it has been found desirable to select a definite type of service for exemplification. For this purpose the order of worship commonly used in the regular Sunday morning service of a fairly large non-ritualistic church has been chosen inasmuch as it provides the freest and widest scope and offers the greatest opportunity for constructive suggestion.
