This website is for Christians who wonder why (and how) they
should retain and improve hymn singing. It has two parts.
The first lays out a detailed argument for traditional practices; they are the
best means we have for doing the job Scripture assigns to us in passages
like Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16. The second applies the
principles of the Biblical Model to the practical nuts-and-bolts task of
evaluating particular poems and tunes.
Paul Munson and Joshua F. Drake teach music and humanities at Grove City
College in Pennsylvania.
New hymn studies added 4 August 2017:

Oh, Come, My Soul, Bless Thou the Lord
Safely through Another Week
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
Who Is on the Lord’s Side?
