ON MUSIC, SIX MARKS, AND CANVAS OF SKY
Originally posted elsewhere, June 12, 2014.
Two questions: How do we (pastors, worship planners, worshipers) evaluate music for communal worship, especially as we seek to expand our musical canon beyond the hymnals of the traditional church? And how do I know if the album our worship leader just released is any good?
Using Bryan Sirchio's The 6 Marks of Progressive Christian Worship Music, I evaluate Paul Demer's album Canvas of Sky. In about 3 pages. Take a look.
