“Harmony in Worship”

This book is recently published and might be considered ‘essential’ reading for all church musicians and clergy.

Harmony in Worship – building supportive relationships between clergy, musicians and congregations – by Stephen Mitchell and Roger Green* (ISBN 978-1-84867-860-6)

Available from Kevin Mayhew (www.kevinmayhew.com)@ £11.99.  There is a 23 page sample on the website.

“Here is an excellent resource for all those interested in the part music can play in worship. At its very best music can enhance so many aspects of worship – from joyous praise to quiet contemplation.

When all is in harmony, all is well, but relationships play an important part and sometimes are ‘off key’. Not only does the book offer suggestions and questions to stimulate those responsible for worship but it also suggests ways to help ensure ministers, organists and worship leaders all sing from the same song sheet.

Contents include chapters on hymns, choirs, organists, the changing face of music in church and instruments. The authors, a well-respected organist and a recently retired clergyman with a music degree, have produced a valuable book to provoke discussion and encourage the part music plays in worship.”

* – yes, the man from St Peter’s.
