Music and Worship: A CICW Guide

Librarian-curated to Music and Worship resources and info from the CICW

Dig Deeper into Multicultural Worship

In Christ, we are one body, and there is great beauty in our diverse members! If you are interested in worship and worship music in different cultures, languages, time periods, and geographies, you can find lots of resources at the Hekman Library. In the Ministry Resource Center, you will find hymnals and other books on different worship traditions, and in the Cayvan Music Collection, you'll find CDs with worship styles from African American gospel to Taize chanting. Here on this page are a few more particular resources you may also find helpful in learning more about multicultural worship, or remember, you can ask your research librarian for more help finding what you're looking for.
