sophocleese What if there wasn't music???? (40) RE: What if there wasn't music???? 05 Oct 01

I rarely play CDs at all in the house now. If I want to hear anything I have the radio on with talking. Often I have a tune going through my head and I'm not interested in hearing other tunes at the moment.

Quakers come from many different backgrounds and among Quakers there are different 'streams' lets say of worship, so that you can have structured and unstructured meetings, the structured ones tend to have more music within the meeting. Outside of meeting many Quakers like to sing and play instruments. The first group that I ever sang madrigals with was started in my home meeting, we were called The Consort of Friends.

I occasionally go to Anglican services. But only when the choir director hads asked me to come and augment the choir for a particular piece. I can't imagine an Anglican service without music.

Christmas without music would be very, very strange. I could do without canned carols from October onwards but not without being able to sing them myself and with others.
