The music in the evangelic world

The music in our assemblies

Music in Protestantism since the time of the Reformation.
Martin Luther ( 1483-1546 ) wanted believers to take part in the services by singing, but he found the Gregorian songs, the hymn of that period, too difficult. He thus arranged and adapted works of diverse origins: medieval popular hymns or even profane songs with words taken from the Bible and from Christian culture. Meetings of evangelical churches give a big place to the group singing. The American black churches were strong in giving it a festive side which attaches to the spirit of the Evangelical Faith."Singing together " therefore remains "modern" permanently "as part of" the everyday life of believers. The songs also  convey the message of the Gospel by  simple means in the modern world.

The place of the music in the evangelical church.
At its inception, the evangelical Pentecostal church, was an assembly with few musicians. Often the wife of the minister plays the piano to support her husband in the moment of singing, to avoid hymns being intoned in a tone difficult for the participants. More recently, the teaching of the music having become more democratic, numerous believers know how to play an instrument and so participate in the fellowship and the singing. The composition and the writing of the songs keep in step with modern tastes and numerous composers create hymns in current styles, the words always remaining very close to biblical texts.
In Manosque, for a long time the piano was the only instrument accompanying the singing. In the course of time, and due to various circumstances, other instruments came to join the praise music: flute, violin, saxophone, drum kit and electric guitar.
The music is never a performance or a show; it serves the singing of the worshipers and is a part of the worship. It's the expression of the faith of each one, it is musical praise to our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The choir Nouvel Horizon 

L'adage dit : "La musique adoucit les mœurs". Ce devrait être une vérité. Pour nous, elle est le moyen d'exprimer les soupirs les plus profonds de notre âme, soupirs de joie ou de tristesse, mais toujours d'espérance.
La chorale Nouvel Horizon, chorale du centre évangélique de Manosque, veut rester dans cet esprit, en interprétant des chants d'inspiration évangélique, encore appelés gospel (en anglais gospel signifie évangile).
Leur participation bénévole est toujours appréciée: offices religieux au Centre Evangélique ou dans d'autres chapelles, évènements particuliers (mariage par exemple), autres occasions (fête de la musique, rencontres de chorales).
Ayant fait une rencontre personnelle avec Jésus-Christ, ils proclament ce qu'il a fait dans leur vie, et ce qu'il peut faire dans la vôtre... : cela à travers un répertoire varié de chants aux styles différents, qui affirment la puissance et l'amour de Dieu Ce message chanté avec simplicité mais conviction s'adresse aux grands comme aux petits, pour réjouir leurs oreilles et surtout leur cœur...
Leur prestation est toujours un intense moment d'émotion
Un calendrier de leur intervention sera tenu à jour sur ce site. Nous espérons que vous serez très prochainement un auditeur ou une auditrice attentive au merveilleux message chanté de l'évangile de Jésus-Christ.

A bientôt

Music fair is each year the opportunity for the choir Nouvel Horizon to make hear on the public place magnificent gospels, as much by words as by music.

Sunday February 14, 2010, the choir Nouvel Horizon animated the day in the evangelical church of Marseille Saint Antoine.
This day of meeting with the congregation of this assembly was marked by joy to meet together, the conviviality of one meal in common and the involvement to a ceremony of baptism.
It was with a real pleasure that all together, we could appreciate the songs proposed as much as the brotherly musical benefit proposed by the group of youth of this church by the choir.
Here is, oh! that it is pleasant, that it is soft For brothers to stay together!
