Kantor Phil Magness has a good discussion going on at Fine Tuning that includes a "self-diagnostic tool."
Chime in on how it's going in your congregation in the following areas:
- A Hymn that Is Proving to Be As Good As First Thought
- A Hymn that Hasn't Met Expectations
- A Hymn that Worked Surprisingly Well
- A Hymn We Haven't Sung Yet, But Will
- ...As Good As First Thought: 411, "I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light"
- ...Hasn't Met Expectations: 521, "Christ, the Lord of Hosts, Unshaken" (love the text, the tune is not catching on in my parish)
- ...Works Surprisingly Well: Nunc Dimittis (Page 211 and Hymn 937)
- ...Haven't Sung Yet, but Will: 957, "Our Father Who Art In Heaven."
