Which musical attributes are most important when creating music for an assembly to sing in worship? What methods are available to create the best songs? What makes a song durable or accessible? How could I get started composing my own music for worship in my congregation or setting? How does one go about selecting a text to set? What hymns need new tunes? What psalms need new settings? Which liturgical events would be enhanced or supported by well-crafted music? What are some common mistakes composers make in creating music for the liturgy? This webinar will address these and other questions related to composition for Christian assembly.
