To the Chief Musician Quoted from a Pedia Source: A precentor is a member of a church who helps facilitate Singing. The role of precentor was carried over from the synagogues into the early church. End of Quote The Psalms were written specifically "to the chief Musician" and we know that the chief musician was an office in the synagogues and in the Old Covenant.... So is a Precentor or in other words a Chief Musician an office in the New Covenant? We are not talking about song writing nor musical instruments.. For all intent and purposes for those that oppose, let assume they have been abrogated which is what I believe. A Precentor would be one who helps singing the Psalms and leads singing the Psalms in the church.... Would this be a continuation office of the Old Covenant since we still have singing and still have singing the Psalms? What would be the qualifications of a Precentor?
