Early Christian Music

Music has been used to worship a deity for over a millennium and in Christianity from its inception around 30 AD.  The music used in the first churches was likely simple chants, using only the voices of the adherents, though instruments have been used for music in general since 4000 BC or earlier. Indeed, the author of many of the earliest songs used in worship – the Psalms – played stringed instruments, and historians say that King Solomon’s temple included choral groups. Much worship music began based on the earliest music offered to God with voice and simple instruments and evolved to include multiple voices and instruments to offer praise and worship to the Holy One, the God of Heaven and earth.
