  • Description

    RHYTHM AND BLUES MUSIC IS CURRENTLY TOPPING THE MUSICAL POLLS IN GREAT BRITAIN. WHILE GROUPS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE PRODUCING THE "BEAT" SOUND THAT TEENAGERS DEMAND, BRITAIN'S SALVATION ARMY HAS BEEN STICKING TO ITS TRADITIONAL BRASS BAND MUSIC OF A CENTURY AGO. NOW THE "ARMY" (THE EVANGELICAL, CHARITABLE SOCIETY IS ORGANISED ON A QUASI-MILITARY BASIS) HAS BEEN TOLD TO MODERNISE.

    THIS IS THE RESULT: A TRADITIONAL HYMN IN CONTEMPORARY STYLE.

    PERHAPS THIS GROUP IN LONDON WILL SET A PRECEDENT THROUGHOUT THE SALVATION ARMY WHICH HAS CORPS AND OUTPOSTS IN OVER 80 COUNTRIES AND TERRITORIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

    BUT THE NEW-STYLE IS NOT EXCLUSIVE TO THE SALVATION ARMY, HYMNS IN MODERN STYLE ARE NOW USED QUITE FREQUENTLY IN BRITAIN'S CHURCHES; AND IN AMERICA A BELGIAN NUN HAS MADE A BEST SELLING RECORD.
