The idea: choose examples of songs that you deem to be good, based on the following criteria:
- scriptural authenticity,
theological and liturgical soundness,
soundness of musical setting i.e. text fits melody, music suits mood of text,
the ability of a song to move one to prayer. [added 19.02.04]
any other criteria you choose to mention.
It will be interesting to see the correlation between most popular and most highly rated.
As this is the Composers' forum, you may be so vain as to cite your own works
I am still thinking about my suggestions......
