Music

At First Church, music has always been an integral part of worship, starting with the tradition of psalm singing that the Puritans brought with them to New England. This led to the printing of the new metric psalm translation known as the Bay Psalm Book in 1640 right here in Cambridge, the first book printed in the British colony. For us, music continues to be one of the best forms of praise, revealing our relationship with God and each other in the practice of a universal human activity in which our community celebrates and affirms our bonds in song and story.
