MUSIC: A song that cares!

Whether you admit it or not, music imbeds our daily life, weaving its beauty and emotion through our thoughts, activities and memories. So if you're interested in music, RELIGIOUS or CHRISTIAN MUSIC, come and be with us in singing joyfully to GOD, this is for all ages and tastes.

When I first started learning to the history of music, I did not realize what I was getting into. I had thought that music history was somewhat of a trivial pursuit. In fact, I only took my music class because I needed the credits. I did not realize how completely fascinating music history is. You see, in our culture many of us do not really learn to understand music. For much of the world, music is a language, but for us it is something that we consumed passively. When I began to learn about the history of Biblical music, however, it changed all that for me. I have had some experience in singing since I was a kid, joining choral group and eventually in a seminary contextual mode of music, like singing in the mass, vespers, lauds and all prayers in chanting. I played guitar but not that good or I may say I just have to learned from it enable me to pass from that subject, and I have never mastered one enough to really understand what music is all about.

When most of us think about the history of music, we think of the history of rock music. We assume that the history is simple because the music is simple. In fact, neither is the case. The history of music, whether you're talking about classical music, rock music, jazz music, or any other kind, is always complicated. New chord structures are introduced bringing with them new ways of understanding the world. New rhythmic patterns are introduced, bringing with them new ways of understanding time. And music reflects all of it.

Music is a soul of life, without music life is then useless. In heaven ANGELS and SAINTS sings in majesty to honor and praise the God, which in them Music is their life. Human as I am, I could not understand hardly in some aspect of my life where it came to ask the significant of music especially in a spiritual aspect. Once has said, if you sing praises to God, you’re praying it twice and a great possibility that God will grant your prayers.

If you have never been into music or singing songs of praises, you don't know what you are missing out on. Singing religious and Christian music lifts up our souls to Him, who is the History of all, the master of Music. The radio will never sound the same music we sang during masses and other Spiritual program to you. What we hear from the radio are secular music, rock music and other alternative music. Everything will seem much richer, much more luminous, and much more important. A religious song can reflect a new way of being, and a new way of imagining life in the world. This is what learning about the theological way of music means to us the STARJED MUSIC MINISTRY. The songs we sung are actually the MUSIC THAT CARES!
