Voices United: A Congregational Song Podcast
Welcome to the official podcast of The Center for Congregational Song, “Voices United.” Produced and Hosted by Whitworth University church music professor Dr. Ben Brody, the podcast is supported by The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada and Whitworth University. As the podcast host, Ben’s task is to have as many conversations as he can with as many different congregational song enthusiasts as he can find. These meaningful conversations will seek to explore why people are passionate about congregational song, what works for their congregations, and stories of success and failures that we can be inspired by or learn from.
All podcasts are available on this website (episode links below) and on our Soundcloud Channel.
