Music for a new old church

One doesn’t have to spend much time planning a liturgy in the Episcopal Church to realize the personal passions and tastes we hold for our music. And the language we use to describe the music we don’t personally like — dirge, sap, drivel, outdated, trash — doesn’t help. One person’s dirge, after all, is another person’s dignity; one person’s sap allows another’s spirit to soar with the Holy Spirit in delight.
