with Emmanuel College's Professor Swee Hong Lim
Deer Park Professor of Sacred Music and Director of the Sacred Music Program
Young and old, people in the pews and those singing in the choir, downloaders and uploaders, musicians and listeners, insiders and outliers, clergy and music directors, karaoke singers and band members, people up on their feet and even people who sit on their hands, all have a playlist of their favourite music. In the 21st century we have witnessed an explosion of musical genres. Beyond the familiar categories, check anyone’s playlist and you could find anything from Afro-beat to Zydeco or adult contemporary to traditional hymns. In the midst of such diversity, what might a playlist for today’s church sound like?
