Praise & Worship

Typically a style of music with an obvious leader playing guitar or piano, and sometimes with the occumpenient of a worship band. One of the most popular styles of music sung in churches today. Because Praise & Worship is sung communally, there is a practical and theological emphasis on its accessibility, to enable every member of the congregation to contribute to the overall musical product, and use the songs as a forum to express their personal praise to God. This manifests in simple, easy to pick up melodies in mid vocal range; repetition; familiar chord progressions and a restricted harmonic pallete; notation (usually lyrics with guitar chords); and, although some more recent examples explore the possibilities of alternating bar lengths, the rhythm too.
