Paul Westermeyer in The Heart of the Matter brings five lectures into print that he delivered at a church music conference in 2000. These lectures are about church music and its relation to the assembly of the church gathered around font, word, and table before the trinity. He treats church music as praise, prayer, and proclamation, story, and gift of God.
Westermeyer bypasses our preoccupation with the how of music-making to focus on the "what" of it all: the heart of the matter.
