About this title


The work of the church musician has always been challenging. In today's climate, there is a need to find new and effective ways to clearly articulate this calling to clergy, congregations, and choir members. This book of lectures examines their work and craft from a historical perspective through current practices. Paul Westermeyer's position as clergyman, musician, historian, and musicologist makes him uniquely qualified to give the reader a bird's eye view of the church musicians' vocation with all of its challenges and joys.
