Local Church Music Festivals

The Rev Thomas H Keir, MA, Minister of St Cuthbert’s Parish Church, Melrose

The local choir unions now being defunct the author suggests replacing them with the occasional organisation of a local service or festival of church music. An improvement can be seen today but at the same time is a catastrophic deterioration in the technical apparatus for the church's praise. We now face a crisis and need to discover new music leadership. The article now explores the setting up of such festivals and offers guiding principles.
