[C]hange does happen. Diminution or even elimination of church “music programs” is not completely unknown. Those members and officers with strong convictions about the regulative principle of worship might even consider the loss of a choir or the breaking up of the band to be a sign of reformation. So how might teams and choirs exit the stage or empty the loft?
…Whatever the reasons or dynamics, some churches (and church plants) have discovered that there is a blessed simplicity and portability when the congregation is the choir and instrumental accompanists are few or non-existent. Congregational singing is scalable and works anywhere, with or without technology, “talent,” or professionals. And, historically and traditionally, it’s how the Reformed church around the world has offered its sung praise in public worship.
