Reenvisioning Ethics, Revisiting Style

Show Summary Details


This chapter brings the discussion of the ethics of style full circle. It proposes several ways that musical change and musical practices themselves might be reenvisioned and rethought in light of the ethics of style by offering a close reading of a Baptist church in Point Fortin, Trinidad. It attempts to reconnect the ethics of style to individual congregations to illustrate the important role that these local instantiations of the Full Gospel community fulfill in the Trinidadian gospel music scene.

Keywords: ethics of style; musical change; musical practices; Point Fortin; Trinidad; congregations; Full Gospel community; gospel music
