From the News of the Church article which introduced the Church music web site in 2004: ‘The most important benefits of the new site will be spiritual. As the First Presidency teaches in the preface to our hymnal, music has the power to move us toward greater spirituality in our homes and families.  Whether or not members have a background in music, the site will help them in studying doctrinal principles, conducting family home evenings, serving in Church callings, and teaching the gospel in many settings.”
