Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HAVERTOWN, Pa. - Jun 25, 2018 - Jean Morse McIntire, a retired church music director, music professor, and contributor to “Teaching Music” magazine, now living in Havertown with her husband; and Alice K. Morse, a lifetime writer and retired secretary who has been published in a popular devotional magazine and lives independently in Berwyn, Pennsylvania; have completed their new book, “Meditations for Church Musicians”: a spirited compilation of biblical meditations on the role of music in the faith.
The authors share, “Just before Moses’ death, the Lord commissioned him to write a song and he followed the Lord’s command. God knew that the Israelites were going to face many trials, even when they reached the promised land, and He gave them a song to remind them of His faithfulness.
“Has God ever given you a song? What a thrill to be commissioned to put down God’s song! Perhaps you have not written any songs, but you certainly have sung or played songs that were inspired by God.
“Sometimes it helps to know what the composers were thinking of or going through when they wrote their music. Songs of God’s faithfulness must be shared with others. The words will come into our minds when we need them.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Jean Morse McIntire and Alice K. Morse’s new book is an invaluable companion for church bands and praise and worship groups meeting for rehearsals and collectively reigniting the heart of what their music is all about.
Touching on the lives of ancient Israelite composers and musicians and other notable figures in the Bible, McIntire and Morse’s book connects modern-day Christian musicians with their early church ancestors through the spirit of their talent and profession.
Readers can purchase “Meditations for Church Musicians” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
