The Need for a Robust Understanding of Congregational Singing

“Today, January 13, we remember the Hussites who, on this day in 1501, published the first hymnal in history written in the language of the common people.” - Breakpoint


A growing problem with maintaining congregational singing is the decreasing number of people who know how to play musical instruments other than guitars and drums. Although not essential to singing, musical instruments are helpful, especially with unfamiliar or new songs. Christian colleges/seminaries are not helping. Almost every time you see a video of someone’s chapel, all you see in the background are drums and guitars.
