"Christ's music-tone"

Every instrumentalist and vocalist spends many hours practicing to improve the sound, the quality, or the individuality of the tones he is producing. Usually he works with a qualified teacher who will keep him from developing erroneous habits or harmful techniques.

Soloists in Christian Science churches should maintain a standard so high that the message they bring to the congregation will be attended by inspiration and healing. First, through conscientious study and practice, they must develop their vocal capacities to the full in order that the production may be pleasing and exact. Secondly, they must not neglect the spiritual inspiration which will bring glory to the selection.

Thoughtful study of the Lesson-Sermon, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, will result in an expanded understanding of the subject for the week and in the selection of a solo which will emphasize the underlying truths of that subject. Conformity to the moral demands in Christ Jesus' teaching and exemplification of the love he lived are necessary elements in the soloist's spiritual preparation.
