Here's another aspect I love about a cappella congregational singing -- if you encourage everyone to sing whole-heartedly regardless of ability, and if you invest time equipping people to sing harmony, the results can be stunning! Even small groups can produce a joyful sound that brings to mind the robust volume typical of a much greater number. Check out this video taken by Randy Lamp in Grand Cayman. Notice how the singing comes across as greater than the actual number in attendance.
The singers traveling with us invested time in learning the harmony parts to the songs before the trip. The Grand Cayman churches who participated also worked on the songs ahead of time. After the Praise & Harmony Workshop, Acappella shared an edifying concert with us. I counted multiple cell phones taping most of the concert.
