    Phenominal book! Like no other!

    A book notable for both its content and organization. Each chapter examines a different style of worship and the acoustic needs specific to that style.

    A great book for those interested having their congregations participate fully in worship and not merely be spectators. A must read for anyone interested in improving their church's acoustics through remodelling or new construction.

    Since most of worship is audible anyway, why not optimize this aspect? This book will help a lay reader understand what is involved.
