Church music and evangelical identity

I’m bound to note the appearance of Ian and my article on this subject, published as part of British Evangelical Identities (Paternoster, 2009, edited by Mark Smith). It explores the way in which, over the period between c.1958 and 1991, the use of ‘new’ or ‘pop’ church music functioned as part of evangelical identity in the Church of England, focussing on perceptions amongst those outside the constituency.

It is also usefully read alongside our other articles on the topic of ‘pop’ church music in the twentieth century Church of England – see earlier posts here and here.
