Music forms a part of God’s worship in the courts above, and we should endeavor, in our songs of praise, to as nearly as possible to the harmony of the heavenly choirs. The proper training of the voice is an important feature in education and should not be neglected. Singing, as a part of religious service, is as much an act of worship as is prayer. The heart must feel the spirit of the song to give it right expression. --Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 591.
