OK, let me continue the flow of Spurgeon and the simplicity of congregational singing in NT worship. Here is part of Spurgeon's exposition of Psalm 42:4 in The Treasury of David:
David appears to have had a peculiarly tender remembrance of the singing of the pilgrims, and assuredly it is the most delightful part of worship and that which comes nearest to the adoration of heaven. What a degradation to supplant the intelligent song of the whole congregation by the theatrical prettinesses of a quartette, the refined niceties of a choir, or the blowing off of wind from inanimate bellows and pipes! We might as well pray by machinery as praise by it.
