Today, we participated in the worship service at New Shiloh. I feelthat today’s participation in the service was different from lastyear’s participation. Last time we were considered as visitors buttoday we participated in the chorus group as we sang together withthem. When we participated in the church New Shiloh last year, we didnot have an opportunity to see the band nor even the instruments theywere using due to the position at which we were seated. However, thisyear, we had the opportunity to sit inside the church and had theopportunity to observe how the band operates and the instruments thatthey use. The band used a piano with a double keyboard andpercussion1. The band selected a particular choir from thechurch, which was tasked with the responsibility of leading thecongregation through the hymns.
Comparing the Ark church and the New Shiloh’s musical groups, itwas clear that the New Shiloh’s musical group was united andappeared professional due to their formal clothing. However, thesound of the drums from the musical group during the service provedto be too loud and the chorus voices could hardly be heard.Additionally, the sound of the drums could be heard during thesermon. It would have been better for the drums to be less loud toensure that the chorus sounds are heard. In today’s service, Ifound the song “Wounded for Me” extremely interesting sue to thesimple melodies and the rhythm. Amongst the wind band solo, chorussinging and the Cello solo, I liked the Cello solo most. The Cellosolo was peaceful and enjoyable hence became my favorite.
