Sacrament music

Postby b-lward-p40 » Sun Nov 22, 2009 5:12 pm

Some of the wards I have been in have the organist play music after the Sacrament is passed while the young men return to their seats and some don't. Does anyone know what the policy is or if it really matters?:confused: I thought I had read somewhere that there is not supposed to be music playing at that time but I can't find where I read it.

I would believe that whether or not music (appropriate music) is played following the sacrament is a choice made by the Bishop/Stake President. You might find some help HEREregarding music in the ward.. I would also suggest the Church Handbook of Instructions, which the Bishop has a copy of.

I have been to the handbook online and to the other link you gave me. I haven't been able to find anything there. Thanks, though.

I hope there's no Church Handbook of Instructions online. If there is, it's certainly not an official copy from the Church.

As a recently released Bishop: CHI pg 38, one sentence addresses the playing of music. "No music should be played during the prayer or while the sacrament is being passed." I do not like the playing afterward while priesthood holders return to their families, but at least one bishop in the stake does. It is a priesthood leader's call.

We use pristhood stay at their sits untill conducting leader stand up to announce the following talks. Some leader also espress thanks to brothers who served for Sacrament and invite them to reach their places, before talks announce.
So no music is plaid when they leave sacrament places. Conducting leader is standing on the pulpit announcing following talks.
I think that is up to leader's sensibility to feel if music enforce or broke reverence's spirit.
