Heart and Hands and Voices – The Music that Makes Worship

The Revd Dr Douglas Galbraith

This was an address given to the Friends of the Music of St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh. It suggests that music be seen not as an adjunct to worship but as integral to it. This is explored by reviewing the different genres of music at a recent service in St Giles' (examples were played) and discussing the effects of each on the liturgy.
