Clergy, worship or music committees, organists, and choir or music directors will find this book an invaluable guide to the role and power of music to express and form faith, to shape the character and climate of your congregation. If you have wondered why more people don't join the choir, or why the congregation isn't raising the roof in song each Sunday, you'll find the answers to these questions and others in this practical guide. Clark draws on interviews and observations made in twenty-four Episcopal and United Methodist congregations to show how churchgoers and their worship leaders express their faith through the music of worship. You'll discover how music can either enhance or detract from tradition and faith experience. You'll explore the two paradigms of music-as-perfomance and music-as-corporate-praise (and why both paradigms may be needed), and tune in to steps you can take to make your church's muic life an integral part of your church's faith experience.
