  • I know I shouldn’t be, but I’m still a little bit scandalized every time I hear instruments playing in liturgical music for a synagogue or an Eastern Orthodox church. (Traditional percussion and bells excepted.)

    I guess I worry that without the prohibition on the use of instruments, the rich old repertoire of all-vocal music for those services will just disappear.
