What are the standards for a song to be featured on the Song Discovery CD?
1. Creative. Is it a well-constructed song? We do not modify the production in any way – how you hear it is how it goes on the CD. So the “quality” should be that of a master. As well, the song is listened to see if it has the strength lyrically to be modified to fit a multitude of congregational settings. What is the song good for? The song needs to serve a function in the worship service, i.e.: offertory, communion, main congregational worship portion of the service, benediction, choral, special number, etc.
2. True. Is this song authentic to the community / author? Our subscribers belong to diverse worship communities, so we are looking to find what truth is being spoken to the represented community. Is this song authentic to the Scripture? Above all else this criterion is most important. We need to make sure the lyrical content is doctrinally sound before it is presented to congregations to be sung over people in worship services.
