Understanding the Hymnal – Part 1 : The Basics

Sanctuary Choir Loft

Have you ever said, “I don’t understand anything about music”; or “ I don’t know one note from another”’ or “ Me? Sing a hymn? You’re kidding!” If you don’t know anything about – if you don’t even suspect anything about – music this class is for you. Basically this class is about Pinnacle’s present hymnal. 

A typical page in the hymnal has many meaningful bits of information about a hymn. Some facts are obvious, such as the title and the words you sing. Other bits of information are in a kind of “code” called notes and rests and clef signs. The more knowledge you have about these, the more understanding you will have as a participant in the music of worship. Thus the more meaningful your experiences will be Sunday after Sunday.
