Nice article, good new thought. I think the singing issue goes deeper that merely a lack of material or it not fitting a particular service though. I think that in our culture, singing has become the preserve of performers. It's no longer something that "ordinary folks" do, and many people might actually feel uncomfortable being asked to sing in public.

you're right and i've said so elsewhere, but i had to compress so much for that article - when writing about alt worship to an audience that's not familiar with it there's so much explanation of the basic situation required before getting to the meat of the argument.

the magazine's readership is organists, choirmasters, church musicians - my 'new thought' declares them more or less redundant! so it'll be interesting if there's any reaction [it's quarterly so the next issue will be out around now].
