This is Paul Race. I love reader questions. In fact, I started the site because of reader questions. People who read my articles on other sites like kept asking me about specific products. After a while, I realized I was typing the same answers over and over again, so I started this site to put those answers into a more organized format.

That doesn't mean I know everything, of course. So not only am I open to comments and corrections, I also learn as much from some reader questions as our readers do.

Here are some good ways to get ahold of me.

USPS Mail - If you have something to mail, you can send it to us in care of:

Carols of many countries, including music, lyrics, and the story behind the songs.

Folks with Bb or Eb instruments can contribute to worship services, but the WAY they do depends on the way the worship leader approaches the music.
