Singing in Community: Paperless Music for Worship

Singing in Community: Paperless Music for Worship

Singing in Community invites you to reconnect with singing and leading music as generations before us have done, something actually begun in ancient times. Before Gutenberg made it possible to "put the music in people's hands," congregational song and folk hymns were led without printed music for each singer. We can learn to sing in this way - a practice that seems new, but is very old.

Over fifty songs are included, as well as useful notes on how to introduce your assembly to the tradition of singing without printed music. This songbook was developed in cooperation with Music That Makes Community, an organization working across the ecumenical spectrum to empower and liberate communities' spiritual life through singing. Orally transmitted music can become a powerful spiritual practice for your community and a way to build meaning, compassion, and creativity into worship.
