Renard prepares a series of musical spells and incantations; prescribed from their secret book (Codified Manual of Tyrus) whose origin dates back to the 9th century and believed to be inspired by Heaven's (excommunicated) original chief musician, Lucifer. Renard's intention - use music to erect confusion among God's people through the worship services.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
HELL In The CHOIRSTAND is a beautifully written novel that offers a glimpse into one of the most vital aspects of contemporary ministry, church music. The vitality of the text will have readers fully immersed in the lives of the main characters, Jeremiah and Renard, and dynamic ministry of the Ezekiel Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. Both of the main characters are deliciously flawed and the conflict between these two will hold your attention from their initial interaction. Readers will engage with these characters as they struggle internally to overcome self doubts, past pains, and worldliness to fulfill their ultimate dreams.One of the aspects of the text which speaks to the genius of the author, Titus Pollard, is the creation of a secret society which masterfully puppeteers the intricate details of church musicianship and ministry to the dismay of congregations of various denominations. The implications of this novel are so real that you will be left asking yourself, "Could this be true?". This novel must be on your reading list!
