“One generation shall commend your works to another” (Ps 145:4). 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.
