SATB church an outdated model?
Date: November 7, 2009
Hello: Just wondering what folks might be thinking with regards to the traditional SATB church choir in North America. Is it a model that small churches should consider dropping?
A recent experiment I tried with a 25 SSA choir showed great results. We tackled some hard rep. sang unaccompanied and grew musically. If I add back in the 3 tenors and 3 basses I'm going to have to go way back down a road I already came.
We never have enough basses or tenors. Why do we stick to this outdated model?
Any thoughts or experience out there?
