What is a Choir?

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

I love singing in the choir! I love being a part of a large group of singers where the harmony comes through. I love it when everyone is having a great time performing and the director is enthusiastic.

I know a lot of churches are getting away from the traditional services with the choir and I think that is a shame. If the leaders in the church think that choirs are old fashioned and the music they sing isn’t interesting then maybe they should think about what is going to be like in Heaven.

Revelation 5:11-12
Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”

Luke 2:13-14
And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

2 Chronicles 5:13

The trumpeters and musicians played together, praising and giving thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments, they loudly praised the Lord, singing: “Certainly he is good; certainly his loyal love endures!” Then a cloud filled the Lord’s temple.

Just like people say, “I don’t like attending a large church because there are too many people.” Did they ever stop to think about how many people are going to be in Heaven?

If people don’t like the hymns and the choirs because they are old fashioned, they may not like the singing in Heaven. The songs that are being sung there today have been around since the beginning of time. I don’t think they are out of date or old fashioned.

Got Me Some Joy

This is a great example of a church choir that doesn’t need to hold on to their music which allows them to move freely with the beat. If the choir is having a good time the congregation will too!
