Music in church

Got a letter in the SMH today.

For five years I was a regular organist at the parish Phillip Jensen led before he was dean of St Andrew’s Cathedral. Musicians are there to serve and one way we do so is by playing to help people sing. The other is by not playing when they are trying to talk.

Music is a great blessing from God, but nowhere near as great as the blessing of quiet conversation about the glory of God, the resurrection of Jesus and the forgiveness of sins.

Reverend Gordon Cheng, Kingsford

The article this is responding to is so misguided and generally irritating that I'm not even going to link it, but google will be your friend if you feel the need to track it down.
