*I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with understanding also.*
*I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with understanding also.*- 1st Corinthians 14:15.
The Choir is a reflection of heaven. Prophet Isaiah gives us a glimpse into God’s throne room with angels singing together, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3). John paints a similar picture in the book of Revelation.The Choir plays the role of leading the congregation in divine worship - singing songs of faith, comfort, hope, forgiveness of sin, coming of Christ, His death and resurrection, redemption of the word by his love and life everlasting.The primary role of the choir is to pray the Mass - The choir sings the Mass just as the priest celebrates the Mass. Sacred Music is part of the liturgy and the role of the choir is to pray them through singing. Leading others (congregation) to pray, deepen their faith and love for God, to praise and glory God during Adoration, Novenas, Praise and Worship, Retreats, etc.. is the other role of the Choir.Furthermore, we often see a wide array of ages, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds on display in the choir. This, too, is a reflection of heaven – God’s people, of every age and every race, worshipping together as one body.
