  1. 4 out of 5

    Douglas Wilson

    Overall, this book is quite good. My only criticism concerns his dismissal of certain popular forms of music -- and this includes the many places where I agreed with such a dismissal. Bland, trite, superficial are words that do describe lots of the current stuff. But why is it bland? It can't be because it was written according to a prescribed formula -- sonnets do that. At the same time, his contrapuntal conclusion was really very good.

    This book holds a high standard for music and yet the necessity of bringing the congregation along for any musical worship to be effective.

    Quite good. The key is to remember Johansson's limited scope.
