To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Nov. 18, 2018: I Sing the Mighty Power of God by Don Chapman

Today’s Music: This morning’s anthem takes a well-known tune, “I sing the mighty power of God,” and soups it up a bit with an underlying syncopated rhythm. This sort of arrangement is not surprising, because it comes from Don Chapman, a leading composer and arranger of contemporary praise music for worship. Notwithstanding his commitment to contemporary music in worship, he has strongly condemned the practice, which he says is all too common in megachurches, of making it all about the hipness of the performers and not about worship. I’m not too worried about our choir being too hip. D. Boelzner
