This website and blog are a private initiative to assist communications amongst those interested in singing the psalms and other musical offerings.
It is administered by the primary author and webmaster, ‘the Cantor’ — musician, singer and coordinator of the psalm singing team.
These ‘Psalm Singers in the South’ are a small band of dedicated singers and musicians at the at South Woden Uniting Church, meeting at Pearce community centre in Canberra ACT, Australia. The author also sings with a classical a cappella chorale and plays piano, bass and flute with several jazz and tango bands in Canberra.
Caveats. This not an official site of the Uniting Church of Australia or any other organisation and all opinions and material expressed, if not quotes, are those of the author. No special expertise is claimed in the intricacies of the scriptures, theology or interpretation. Keep in mind this is a public site. Anyone can follow. Exercise normal internet prudence. Comments may be moderated.
South Woden Uniting is blessed with several fine musicians, singers and instrumentalists. However, we are small in number and do not maintain a standing choir arrangement. We therefore tend to work in phases of particular activity or focus, often dictated by the annual church calendar and seasons or particular events.
Musicians and singers in the South Woden valley are encouraged to join us to contribute and improve their talents and enjoy a varied and exploratory musical experience to support spiritual growth in themselves and others.
