Why Not Plainsong?

The Rev Fred Robertson, BA, Minister of Bridgend Church, Mid-Calder

The author shows that plainsong is not an innovation (as in Church Hymnary: Third Edition) and is much older than the 'old tunes' preferred by most. He outlines the experience of his own congregation, how plainsong took them back to the power (and the Scottish tradition) of unison singing. He also explains the nature of plainsong.
