"There is nothing in the world so much like prayer as music," said William P. Merrill. Brass, woodwinds, strings and percussion all bring variety and splendor to our environment. The human voice is one of the most beautiful instruments in the musical spectrum. Music and singing renew our spirits and enable us to experience emotions that transcend words. We affirm our faith with hymns and songs of praise; I cannot imagine a world without the wonder of music.

"They ministered with music before the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, until Solomon built the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem" (I Chronicles 6:32a).
