From Mr John Puxty
Sir, - I enjoyed reading the Revd Michael Counsell's Prayer
for the Week column (Faith, 14 December). I must,
however, take exception to his comment that "when you are
concentrating on singing well, you have no time to think about the
God you are singing to."
Good singing is very much about being aware of the meaning and
the object of what is being sung. When we sing to God, we sing as
we might to an audience or indeed to a lover, being aware at some
level both of what we are creating and also of what is being
received, and by whom.
