    What are the best books on the topic of a capella congregational singing?

    Girardeau from American SP perspective (a capella inclusive hymnody).

    See his book on the subject in particular and Dabney's review of it.

    There is also John Price’s “Old Light on New Worship: Musical Instruments and the Worship of God, a Theological, Historical and Psychological Study.” Price is a reformed Baptist pastor in NY. He only deals with instrumentation and isn’t EP. It’s a very accessible book.

    Thank you for the responses.

    Is anyone familiar with Everett Ferguson's A Capella Music in the Public Worship of the Church?

    I’ve never seen that but it looks interesting.

    From what I can tell he's a Campbellite. That doesn't mean it's a bad book, but it won't be written from a Reformed perspective.

    All of my books are without musical accompaniment.

    Thanks. I might get it if it goes on sale on the Book Depository.
