Music in Worship

Controversies

M.C. Kurfees (1856-1931) argues in favor of a capella singing based on the use of the Greek words psallo and psalmos in the New Testament.

Though J.B. Briney (1839-1927) had opposed instrumental music, is this review he contends that he will demonstrate that psallo refers to singing whether with instruments or without, and that he believes he has settled the argument definitively.
