Product Description

As their privileged status evaporated in America's melting pot, the Dutch Reformed Church was forced to compete with a host of rising Protestant denominations in the New World. Survival became linked to assimilating within a new American way of life, with its own distinct language, culture, and religious practices. Gradually, organs, hymns and institutional church choirs were added to the traditional singing of the Psalter--innovations that altered the very fabric of Dutch Reformed religious life in America.

Sing to the Lord a New Song examines how choirs in particular revolutionized the Dutch Reformed Church in the nineteenth century, transforming the church's very nature in terms of worship, ecclesiastical life, institutional structures, and even social, fiscal, and moral practices. Moreover, the book examines how choirs helped break social barriers, particularly those regarding the status and role of women in the church.

Includes audio CD.

Endorsements

"By narrating the story of how one group of immigrants entered into the American landscape and survived among a diverse canopy of denominations and ethnic groups, Tripold offers an instructive resource and a poignant reminder of the powerful cultural and economic forces that worship practices both reflect and shape.
-John D. Witvliet
Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary

Tripold's documentation of the Americanization of the Dutch Reformed Church is clear, thorough, and full of illuminating primary source material.
-Martin Tel
Princeton Theological Seminary

Like a restoration expert cleaning the grime off the portrait of Reformed worship, Tripold reveals a vivid picture of parish worship in this excellent volume.
-James Hart Brumm
Blooming Grove Reformed Church

An absorbing account of how Reformed psalm-singing evolved into a broader experience of church music that was thoroughly American without entirely losing its Dutch accent--and an essential read for anyone interested in American church music.
-Robin A. Leaver
Author of J. S. Bach and Scripture

David Tripold has written an engaging and wide-ranging book using the institutional choir as a lens through which to observe the liturgical history of the Dutch Reformed Church...The included CD will allow readers to hear the music of the time, a rarely recorded repertoire.
