Music

Julia Fox 9-26-2010 011Music has a central place in Lutheran worship.  From the German chorales to contemporary hymnody to the addition of songs from various cultures, Lutherans have always held to the motto: “Bis orat, qui contat.”  (“Those who sing pray twice.”)  Music enlivens our worship and allows the emotions and thoughts of our hearts to be expressed as our offering to God.  At Salem, we use a variety of musical settings in our Sunday worship as well as a wide range of hymns and worship songs. Instrumental accompaniment also enhances our music at our festival celebrations.
