7. Conclusion

In many churches, the rich and complex tradition of worship—so important in the spiritual life—is fading from existence. Doing church services is hard. It is complicated. It requires knowledge and skill. There is a shortage of singers, students of church music, and the means to teach them. They lack the required texts and musical scores, as well as the knowledge of rubrics, to perform the services correctly. As a result, there is a temptation to simplify or eliminate church services. The authentic liturgical tradition is diminished or even lost. Clearly, something needs to be done.

AGES Initiatives is determined to meet these challenges. In partnership with other interested organizations and with funding from private individuals and grants, it purposes to use current and emerging technologies to develop innovative solutions, to promote and sustain the Church’s Music Ministry.
