The Theory and Practice of the Music in the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Papua New Guinea
258 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, maps, index, bibliography. Apwitihire: Studies in Papua New Guinea Musics, 8. This book provides background information on the worldwide Adventist Church and, in particular, the role that music plays in the church as a whole. From the beginnings of the mission in Papua New Guiena in 1908, a panoramic outline of Adventist missions in the country and their church music is presented. Noticeable are the attempts of the missionaries to introduce a foreign culture against the backdrop of the country's traditional musical heritage. This study examines the church music practices and the attitudes of members and leaders towards aspects of worship music, providing analytical material for the fruition of an indigenously-conceived church music style. 0.0.
