It was reputedly St Augustine who said that anyone who sings, prays twice. This new collection of prayers, covering the church year as well as special events, brings prayer into the heart of the lives of church musicians. The book can be used as a basis for private devotion, as well as in the vestry before or after a service. Just as the music we have sung can stay in our inner ear through the ensuing days so too perhaps can the meaning of these prayers, as the purpose of praise throughout our lives is rehearsed and remembered before and after public singing.
