The Lock Hymn Tune Collection: hymns as a theology of worship
Barbara N Salter
This project demonstrates connections between an act of ministry as proclamation/herald and an act of ministry as teaching/performance. The Lock Hymn Tune Collection demonstrates these acts through performance of select hymns. A lecture/concert presented the hymn collection as a model for linking performance and proclamation. Hymns selected illustrate the growth of the collection, the variety of musical styles performed by the congregation, and the theological, social, and musical basis on which these hymns gradually evolved. Through an evaluation of the concert by both audience and performers, the project demonstrates imaginative use of historical texts and tunes in today's church. A commentary presented during the performance reflects on the history, purpose, and social context of the collection.
