December Magazine 2021

December’s issue is all about the revelatory nature of music. Our contributors write about their love for music during the holiday season, as well as the larger role music plays in the Anglican Church throughout its history and into the present day.

In our opening feature, Charles Garinger reflects on the important role music has played in both his life and the life of st benedict’s table, where he currently serves as Music Director. Rachel Cameron expresses a similar sentiment in her report on the music ministry at St. Paul’s Fort Garry. As Music Director, Rachel challenges the congregation at St. Paul’s to “explore, study, and recontextualize” music as they would the Bible.

In the issue’s second feature, Dr. Anthony Waterman, author of “What is the Anglican Church?”, contextualizes the role of music in the Anglican tradition. And then, first-time RLN contributor Cass Smith makes her case for the magic of Christmas music.
