Many questions have been made concerning how the choir barricade should be set up. It may surprise you to know that the choir in Celestial Church does not have a conventional setup per se.
However, it is considered proper for the singers to be in the front and for all the instrumentalists to be in the rear.
The soprano and alto singers should be grouped in the first row of the barricade, while the tenor and bass singers should be grouped in the second row.
The drummer should stand alongside the keyboardist because the keyboard is crucial to the singing of our hymns, and the other instruments can be set up side by side. The keyboardist should face the singers.
The choirmaster/mistress is not allowed to sit in any position in the cage, regardless of rank in the church; instead, he or she should sit behind all the singers, preferably close to the door.
If the parish has a podium for conducting, the conductor should stand in front, facing the singers.
Let’s remember this. The barricade shouldn’t be set up, however, or as we choose.
