A Precentors’ Workshop has been held at Knockbain Free Church to help and encourage those who were just beginning to precent.
The event, which took place last month, was led by Sandy Finlay. During the workshop Rev. Neil ‘Lachie’ Macdonald shared some teaching and tips for leading the sung praise of the Psalms. Three other experienced precentors shared some of the lessons they’ve learned over the years. Many Psalms were sung over the course of the evening, sounding beautiful with rich harmonies, and resources were shared during a Question and Answer session. Around 40 precentors and singers, male and female, from a number of congregations across the Highlands attended the event, culminating in a very good and helpful event.
Unaccompanied Psalm singing has provided a rich source of sung praise for generations, and we trust that it will continue for generations to come. We hope to run a similar event in 2/3 years.
