Sacred Voices Echo The Sound of Acapella

The evolution of choral music is defined by religion, encapsulated in the download acapellas term "acapella," the Italian phrase for music "according to the chapel." The host of compositions made for unaccompanied voices before the year 1600 was arranged by composers to be sung by choirs in praise of their God.

Certain religions still hold to the original values that ancient church leaders found appealing as a doctrine, that the regulative principles of worship based on the second Commandment were to be strictly enforced.

In recalling the pious nature of apostles and scripture that admonished false idols before God, parishioners were encouraged to sing loud the praises of their faith without accompaniment. Many Presbyterian, Baptist, Mennonite, and Amish members still hold to these values today.
