New Song. A Skillfull Song
2020 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Seminar
Those of us who feel the call of Psalm 33 to write new songs must remember that the psalm also tells us to play skillfully. In this seminar we focused on the skills of songwriting for congregations, digging into what it means to balance inspiration and perspiration. These singer-songwriters spoke about their approaches to creating new texts, new tunes, and the combining of texts and tunes. We also spent some time discussing participants’ song submissions.
